This one’s for you, redmallee, to remind you of home on your travels. And thanks for reminding me of NP’s bedroom eyes: yes, no wonder she was pregnant ten minutes later!

Thank you so much for thinking of me and making this! How awesome are the screen captures. He he yes, just look at the look in pic 3.

They should have had more of Nathan. Probably the only male in the cast who passed muster in 1970s fashions!

"It is often discussed how much influence the feminist movement exerts on women’s morals, and these very discussions generally show to what a great extent women are regarded as sexual beings, to what a small extent as human beings."
- Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen)

So now that Miss Fisher is over and there are no episodes to analyse - though yay Season 3 come soon - I don’t know what to do with the blog. I don’t watch TV at all these days and unfortunately books I read are not so popular on tumblr but maybe I will do a post now and then.

I read  your post about Gurney’s “Love Letters” for Nathan and Essie. Imagine Nathan reading a love letter. Wow.

I am still hanging out for that moment! Better be better than Jack reading Rilke and looking very Inspector-y.

i am a bit of a sucker for movies that feature writers though more often than not movies about writers are below par (Sylvia anyone).  Plus almost all films featuring women writers tend to be “Angsty Love Life of {insert author name}” and little else. Still The Golden Era is stuffed with so many eminent writers, Lu Xun (that’s him in the still with his back to the camera) and Ding Ling amongst them, that just maybe this one on the writer Xiao Hong may work even if a previous film on the author didn’t. Plus it’s an Ann Hui film, I kind of liked her Eighteen Springs. And of course Tang Wei who is perfect all the time. OK almost all the time.

Feeling you nearby, how could I not come to walk beneath this evening moon rising over flowering fields.

how could I not come
