It’s happening at the right time for Richard.

Standard

I have this notion that events in our lives happen when they happen for good reasons, even if we don’t know those reasons at the time.

“If this opportunity had come to me ten years ago, I would not have survived,” Armitage says. “I wouldn’t have known what to do with it. Now I feel I’ve got an opinion to bring to it, my own interpretation of the character in the book, but other things as well, attitudes that I think we can make resonate with a contemporary audience:honor, loyalty, nobility,corruption.”

Hooray for the opportunity of a lifetime happening in the right place at the right time for our favorite actor. He’s mature, seasoned, savvy, confident. Ready to take on the world!

I am not very good at keeping my New Year’s resolutions. But I thought of some I’d like to tackle. Richard and his ChaRActers helped me out with the illustrations. Some are very tongue-in-cheek and others more serious. Here are some of them:

Give me an Armitage hero

Standard

I am still in a heroic mode. Well, I am not a hero. But I want to pay tribute to Mr. Armitage, a personal hero of mine, and his wonderful characters, with all their flaws and inner conflicts, their ambiguities, who become our heroes. I prefer them to the guys in the capes and tights with the super powers. Give me an Armitage hero.
