Did everyone enjoy the Simple Things list post? I loved it and I can't wait to do it again. I may even keep a running list of Simple things on my sidebar to do weekly.
I came on today and found I have 42 dreamers. Wow! A big welcome and hug to all who are new here. I hope you always leave here with a smile and a boost of sunshine. I do my best to be as real here as I am in my life. I celebrate the good and do honor the shadows of life. And if you have been lurking for a while, say hello! (I don't bite unless you have chocolate with you.) Much Love for all who come here regularly to share your thoughts, dreams and ideas with me.
Yesterday, I went to see a dress rehearsal with my friend Lady R. for the show Shafrika, The White Girl at the Vineyard Theatre down in Union Square. It is a joyous and wonderful show about a girl growing up in a multiracial family. It opens tonight and worth to see if your in New York.
I have only Mansfield Park left to read in my Spending Spring with Jane Austen. I finished Emma on Wednesday. I love the 1996 Emma starring Gwyneth Paltrow. ( I do want to see the Kate Beckinsale version.) The book dragged to me. Just didn't have the Jane Austen sparkle. All who love Emma, my apologies. Like the saying goes: not everything is for everybody. My favorite character was Mr. Knightley. He was the voice of reason in the novel; I was always happy when he walked into a scene. Jeremy Northam, who I have loved since Emma, is a perfect swoonworthy Mr. Knightley. This is a perfect time for a clip.
Wasn't that sweet. Makes me all mushy inside. Yes, I am big romantic cream puff! So, I'll be starting Mansfield Park tomorrow. Let you all know what I think. If you want to read my thoughts on the other novels, just click on the Jane Austen posts.
Here's to fabulous and creative Friday for all.
