I often ask myself why certain things drawn me in and why other I cannot give 2 pennys for them. I wish I would have an answer but I do not! That is the truth... my heart is more open to some things than the other and we cannot meddle in the affairs of the heart and we can not even try to understand them. Since I was a wee lass I was very much interested and drawn into history and art and literature... cultural things... I grew up with Alexandre Dumas books - both the son and father - and I remember even the time I catched the book The Black Tulip and I loved its cover so much that I wanted to read it but my mum told me it was not its time yet and I was too young - I was somewhere in the 2nd or 3rd grade... I devoured later on this book and the many others that these lovely writers wrote. It was like I was actually in France, in the skin of the hero, doing the things he was doing... Chivalry & Honor were one of the first words I have learned on the subject. Later on I discovered Jane Austen and the Bronte Sisters, who - in my humble opinion - created the genre of period books! and I just fell in love with them all for life... Later on I started to watch more and more period movies - adaptations of the wonderful books I have previously read - and my life changed. A lady would behave like a lady... well... unfortunately as much as I tried I could not fit under the lady model and I am afraid I would have been very much like Elizabeth Bennet and would have been caught off guerd reading a book everywhere with my hair in a mess and my petticoat stained in the mud... I would have been speaking my mind amd mortifying my family ;))) Now would not that be a sight to behold?!
