I would love to know what Jane Austen was like. Emma, Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice are three of my favorite, oft-read novels. And how about William Blake, John Keats, Lewis Carroll, and of course Mark Twain would have been there on a trip to London. How heavenly!
Have you ever noticed all the childhood nursery rhymes seem to have been created in that era? Every time I read them to the girls I am whisked away in time, and I enjoy the temporary mental travel.
The book I picked up last week at my favorite resale shop has some great old rhymes in it, and the illustrations add depth to the short tales.
After enjoying Midnight in Paris, I finally got Vicky Cristina Barcelona from the library, and I also liked it very much. I might have liked it even better because of the fabulous acting and music. I can't say I agree with Woody Allen's transient view of love, but I can appreciate his artistry.
What's your take? Yea or nay on Woody Allen movies?
Meet you back here tomorrow for some more randomness.
