The day is drawing to a close, and I’ve never felt so overwhelmed by the Jane Austen community. Pride and Prejudice has been a part of my life for a long time, and I seek solace in the pages whenever I feel bored, exhausted, miserable or just in need of some form of recognisable beauty. It’s like crying on your best friends shoulder, or asking for advice over coffee. Sometimes the comfort can be hard to see, but it’s in the pages themselves and by the time Darcy and Elizabeth are coming to terms with their issues, you’re coming to terms with your own.
Postsecret- Frank Warren
Postsecret is a blog that is made up of secrets written on postcards. It sounds sort of silly, but it’s a heartfelt reminder of all the similarities and differences between people. It can be soothing, shocking and even L-O-L funny at times, but everything about it seems to be sincere. But why am I posting this on a Pride and Prejudice blog? Because one postcard, about two weeks ago, came in that was my own secret through and through, but from some other place in the world, and it said “When I daydream, I pretend I’m the heroines in Jane Austen’s works.” And it begged the question… what hidden secrets do we have about Pride and Prejudice?
