Change. I've learned to embrace it, ride it out til the end. Sometimes I'm kicking and screaming, other times weeping with my eyes clinched tight. Once in awhile I ride like a dog in a car, head out the window snorting what life has to offer. Mother to young adult children, a marriage of thirty years, and a desert to mountain to valley waltz with God have shaped me into someone I never imagined I'd be. Life is short and I want to live it. Tears, sighs, laughter and change. Every morsel granted to me. Scrambled, shaken or stirred.

22 and I have entered a Jane Austen marathon of sorts.
Today she purchased Persuasion and we watched it while avoiding the humidity and the housework.
I just bought Pride and Prejudice, the pink version, which we watched two weeks ago. She just finished one Jane Austen fiction title, and is in the middle of a second and now I find myself searching for more versions of the films.
We've never seen Northanger Abbey and have only viewed Mansfield Park once. One click ordering at Amazon makes the urge almost impossible to control.
The pink version, above, is a total modern version of the tale and is charming in it's own quirky way.
What is it about Mr. Darcy and Mr. Knightley and scenes in the rain/fog?
Which is your favorite Austen story? Hero? Heroine? Movie version? Are we alone in our new obsession?
