Entry #208: Aurelia's Oratorio

A scene from Aurelia's Oratorio makes it way to my brains often. The Lace Scene, for lack of a better title. Lace means to ensnare-- perfectly fitting although in the case of lace-- its much more fluid-- planned.

Lace deserves its spot in American history, with the founding of the The Quaker Lace Company of Philadelphia in 1911 (although its owners began shop in 1889). The company mass produced and marketed lace with a zeal, and even created the first lace tablecloth.. then it went bankrupt in the 90s (probably in a PE deal)... ta-da!
