Amarillo, Tx - United States

Aahh yes, Jane Austen. Her books and the movies made from them make me yearn for a more simple time in my life, how I miss those days...Thanks for sharing this work of art Lois. f/v

Lois Bryan replied:

Hey Karen ... I guess since I've read them so many times, it's the very familiarity of them that brings such comfort. But yet, every time i read one of them I pick up a nuance .. or an angle ... or a visual ... that is brand new. They never grow old!!! And like you, the simpler times are a draw ... even though her characters certainly had contemporary problems!

My Best Friend Jane


Lois Bryan


Photograph - Photography


5/11/13 ... First Place ... Co-Winner along with Meghan at FireBonnet Designs' image "My Muse" of the "Books" Contest ... Sponsored by the Photography Excellence, A Daily Ezine Group. My thanks to everyone who voted for "My Best Friend Jane"!!

"My Best Friend, Jane"

Jane Austen is my best friend. She has never failed to take me out of whatever crisis the universe has decided to hurl my way and land me safely in a place peopled by the most authentic personalities. They may have been born (penned, of course) in the very early 1800s, but are as contemporary and vital and hilarious and genuine as if they lived next door to me. I know them all. I love them all. Yes, I hear voices. The voices of my friends.

Once again, my thanks to Jerry Jones, Shadowhouse Creations, for the texture.
