I’m the only one in my household that likes watching TV with the closed-captioning turned on.  What can I say, I love to read. The words are very important to me.

I’m glad I had the subtitles turned on when I watched the movie, Bright Star,  because it is all about words–the words of poet, John Keats.

One line in the movie had me sighing: “There is a holiness to the heart’s affections.”

Another such quote I must add to demonstrate the mind and heart of a writer. The words are spoken by Mr. Brown, “If Mr. Keats and myself are strolling in a meadow or lounging on a sofa or staring into a wall, do not presume we are not working. Doing nothing is the musing of a poet.”  and might I add the musing of a fiction writer, as well.

I should make Fanny Brawne my spokesperson for Put A Ruffle On It since, as a designer and seamstress of clothing, she made the most beautiful of ruffles (at least on screen).
