On Screen Inspiration

“Everybody wants to be us” – smiles Miranda Priestly as she puts on her sun glasses and gets off the car. But before she does that, for just a speck of a second, a world of pain washes over her face. In an earlier scene, her ‘self’ is exposed much more when she speaks about her divorce to Andrea. A ‘dragon lady’ – she calls herself.

Meryl Streep is fabulous. And every time I watch ‘The Devil wears Prada’, I fall in love with Miranda’s character -- her portrayal of the inner strength that she exudes helping her to very well survive a world of fashion and stereotypes otherwise known to be ruthless.

You left me, sweet, two legacies - Emily Dickinson

YOU left me, sweet, two legacies,—
A legacy of love
A Heavenly Father would content,
Had He the offer of;

You left me boundaries of pain 5
Capacious as the sea,
Between eternity and time,
Your consciousness and me.
