Intellect rides my imagination and subsequent creativity like the Boo Hag, so last night whilst working my soul, I stopped to read about Black Victoriana. How interesting! Going into this challenge all I had for a frame of reference was Elizabeth Barret Browning' s Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's Point. Although expertly written, this tale works my nerves, not my soul! So, onward I go and lo and behold there is some interesting stuff out there. Art and books and authors, oh my! Ultimately, I stumbled on this site and ordered some books. Good times!
Ever increasing though, is my grief over the untimely passing of Mr. Roarke. How, other than Fantasy Island (Drugs are NOT an option.), does a married American mother of two in 2009 get to try her hand at life as a Black Victorian spinster? Well, of course getting there isn't the whole battle. There are other things to work out, like the dark clothing; so morose. Spinsters are just antique feminists, we're all about life and colo...ahem colour! I've got work to do! Where has your imagination taken you recently?
