A few weeks ago I read a wonderful book called Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. Loving Frank is a work of fiction based on events relating to the love affair of Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick Cheney. It follows their lives from 1907 to 1914.
I am a Frank Lloyd Wright fan and have spent hours visiting his houses and taking the in-depth tour of his Arizona studio, Taliesin West. I have walked through Oak Park, Illinois in the rain, and was privileged to set foot at the famous Ennis-Brown House in Los Angeles. Falling Water is on my must-see list.
This line from the book, attributed to Frank Lloyd Wright, is the one that took my breath away “When I find beautiful things, I feel as if they are necessary tools for my life. I can't bear to have junk around, disturbing the peace. Better a space be empty."
