Because Audrey Knows Best
Today, Emily D. got me thinking about Sabrina, a favorite old movie of mine that hasn’t crossed my mind in a long time. Then, as though by magic, Audrey’s voice started to echo in my head…
“It is late at night and someone across the way is playing La Vie en rose. It is the French way of saying ‘I am looking at the world through rose-coloured glasses.’ It says everything I feel. I have learned so many things, Father. Not just how to make vichyssoise or calf’s head with sauce vinaigrette, but a much more important recipe. I have learned how to live, how to be in the world and of the world, and not just to stand aside and watch. And I will never, never again run away from life, or from love, either.”
Oh Humphrey*…Oh Audrey…
You know what? Sometimes a girl’s got to embrace her romantic, sappy impulses and post on her blog about La Vie en Rose for no particular reason. That’s just the way it is, folks.
Audrey would approve, methinks. =)
*Where have all the Humphreys gone? I have met zero people named Humphrey in my life. I find this a sad.
