Something Delicious

There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You can never quite tell where they will take you. Mine took me here.
--Beatrix Potter in the first line of the movie Miss Potter

I think they were the closing lines as well. Am not sure and would like to know if they were taken from Miss Potter's own writings--letters or journals--or were the words of the screenplay writer.

At any rate. The movie, Miss Potter, about the beloved Beatrix Potter, creator of the children's books Peter Rabbit et all beloved by 4, 5, or 6 generations of children to date is itself delicious. Starring Renee Zellweger as Beatrix and Ewan Mcgreggor (how ironic is that?) as her publisher, Norman Warne, this film is a must see for any one who ever loved Peter Rabbit, and his siblings, Flopsy, Mospy and Cotton Tail; Jemima the Puddle Duck and Benjamine Bunny.

It is also a must for anyone interested in the lives of the path-breakers for modern women's roles in society. Born into 1866 Victorian era England she lived to see the expectation's of womenkind morph to what they were in 1943--mid WWII. But she did much more than watch. She lived the change.

The soundtrack is wonderful as well. Especially the song When You Taught Me How To Dance sung by Katie Melua featured in the YouTube above. If it has been disabled, do seek it out as it is worth it.
