He’ll be my light, my match, my burning flame . . .


As most of you know, Benny and I have been somewhat overwhelmed by the busy-ness of our video production business in the past weeks (this, of course, is a good thing, although my injured, aching wrist isn’t so sure about that).   So I’ve just briefly popped in and out of Armitage World for the most part. The lovely thing is knowing it’s always there for me when I do need it and have the time to play.

Today, I had time to play.










What powerful images Mr. Brooks the photographer has given us. I do not presume to “improve” on the perfection of his images, just do a little creative tweaking. I look at these images and see so much emotion, overt and covert, so much of what I imagine are the innermost feelings in the heart, mind and soul of this character. And, of course, I cannot overlook the mature masculine beauty before me.

Mr. Armitage, you look every inch the distinguished actor of the theatre here. I know those who will see you are beside themselves with excitement . .

I'm an LA native--Lower Alabama, that is. My husband of more than 30 years and I live here on a portion of my family's former farm with two gorgeous calicos and a handsome GSD mix. My background is art education, and over the years I've been a teacher, department store photographer, sales associate and a journalist. My husband, his business partner and I have Pecan Ridge Productions, a video production company, for which I shoot & edit video and stills and manage marketing. I also still write part-time for the local paper. I love movies, music, art, photography and books, and my tastes in all of them are eclectic.

  1. Two members of the Harem will be there to see it (unfortunately, I will not be one of them) and I’m sure we’ll get full reports on their experiences! I would kill to be able to go, but it just isn’t in the cards.

    • I have reconciled myself to the fact there was just NO way for me to be there and I would have to settle for living the experience vicariously. Better than not at all, right?

      • We’ll try really hard to persuade the ‘Old Vic’ theatre to do a D.V.D of the play so that everyone who can’t get to see it will be able to buy it. We’ve signed petitions and written , and when we’re there we’ll ask again. I’m sure they will when they realise how much interest there is. Hubby and I are there on the opening night, 4 rows back from Mr Armitage. Don’t know if I’ll – thud!

  2. I can’t believe this is almost upon us, I’ve become so resigned to waiting months and years in the case of ‘Into the storm’ to see Richard’s work that the Crucible has taken me by surprise I have not made any travel plans and Saturday the 28th June will soon be here. I hadn’t realised I had purchased preview tickets until I read all the comments on the various forums. I wonder if any changes will be made.
    Just heard Daniel Day-Lewis has been made a knight in the Queen’s birthday honours.
