My theme this year is the ABCEDARIA of Women who have inspired me.
A is for Alcott, Louisa May.
this clip is from the same crunchy bound book I had as a child
So even if I'm 64 years old and haven't had a novel published yet - I take inspiration from Alcott and her wild-hearted Jo.
Other fabulous A's - Jane Austin - if the sisters in Little Women fueled my youth, the sisters in Pride & Prejudice lit a fire in my (slightly) older years.
Do you hearken back to any old books, or characters to help keep you going?
On another note : My mother, Bea Morrison, died 24 years ago on April 1st. I still miss her and feeling it more keenly today as my fella's mother died just a week and a bit ago. Mums! She still visits me in my dreams (as does my Daddio) and I'm always happy when she drops by for a visit. Here she is on the right at a photo taken in Oakville. My sister Jude is the glam babe on the left, then my bro, Don in a suit, then me in a silly hat, my Daddio and my flashy looking mum! I'm guessing this is 1966.
