it is rather cold. but it provides a beauty that only comes with the forsty temperament of winter so i guess it must be endured.
pretty sure it's providing me with a (un)healthy dose of S.A.D. sad story indeed.
i just finished reading house of mirth and yet surprised myself with my attachment to characters, even those who are so obviously flawed. i am so glad i'm not like lily bart, but i have a feeling lily would feel the same way about me as i am probably very much what she would label as "dingy". why do we think these fallible character make such good romance's even when they cheat themselves out of any actual romances by the previously mentioned obvious flaws and why do i get attached? whatever happens i will never feel that wuthering heights is a romance, emily pushes the character flaws too far for me to emphathise with in that one. sorry heath and kathy you'll have to go along wailing with kate bush.
