real comfort

it is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. {jane austen}

so begins the timeless tale of elizabeth bennet and mr. darcy, better known as pride and prejudice. the words alone fill me with the anticipation of all that is to come.

tonight, we had a jane austen book club movie night, and as with every time i watch it, i have that strong urge to pick up another of her books. alicia & i read northanger abbey last year, and we've slated mansfield park as next, but i am having a strong desire to read persuasion. perhaps i can sneak it in.

but even more than reading the books, i love the conversations that come when people who enjoy the books and the movies come together to talk about these passions of ours. and tonight, my living room was filled with such friends.

i'm not sure which of jane's books this quote came from, but i like it:

there is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. {jane austen}

especially, i might add, when you are surrounded by good friends.
