The Whys and Wherefores

The Republic of Pemberley is a wonderful site, but I think that I've come to that party a little too late to dance, so I'll be a lurker there.

This will be my little outpost of Austen Adoration, solely for my own amusement and anyone else's who happens to stumble across this humble blog.

So, to this first short post I will add:

"You deserve a longer letter than this; but it is my unhappy fate seldom to treat people so well as they deserve. . . .God bless you!" --Jane Austen, letter to Cassandra Austen (1798)

My word, but this is a beautiful site! Jane, I'm sure, would have approved of its design, although probably blushingly.
I'm so happy to see you following your heart.

I'm sure that Jane would have been greatly diverted to see her little sketches on ivory (2 inches wide) having such an impact as to birth movies, college courses, literary critiques, clumsy sequels websites, and, of course, blogs.

Glad you like my wee homage, Dad!
