My power couple this week is Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet. I love the BBC version and watch it probably 3 or 4 times a year. I imagine what their life, post-movie, looks like. Imagine the film crew finally leaving and them staring at each other, wondering what they will talk about now. I like to think they are like my husband and me. We like to argue, debate, bicker or however else you’d like to put it. Their need for competency pushes them to one-up one another and they are in constant battle for king/queen of the mountain. I know Elizabeth isn’t first-born but let’s just say it, Jane isn’t filling that role and someone has to play boss. So, Darcy and Lizzy are in a battle of the first-borns. If you are like me- you are a first-born and married a first-born, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Unless of course, you are like Jane.
What do you like about this movie/book? Do you prefer the Keira Knightley version? I will say the end of that version is my favorite. The cinematography is amazing and him walking in the fog and the placement of the sun between the two of them is just wonderful. And let’s face it what woman wouldn’t love to hear, “I would have to tell you, you have bewitched me, body and soul and I love, I love, I love you.” I think that line is what moves people to prefer Matthew McFadden as Darcy.
I hope all of you are having a great week and are slaying all kinds of goals. I am realizing that the act of planning, making and accomplishing goals is probably my favorite anything of all time. I guess it is why I love digital art – you have a vision, plan it, do it and then share it.
