Mercy for such a man

Watching a new version of Brideshead Revisited on BBC America today. Somehow those brits bring you into their story. The manors, castles, Dames and Knights…. Who wouldn’t want to watch that kind of thing unfold..

I’ve been thinking on Henry VIII of late. The Tudors tele show adds fuel to the fire, although in My opinion, the series lost its spunk once Anne Boleyn was no more. Actress Natalie Dormer, and her chemistry with actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry… let’s just say the two blistered off the screen HOT!

The Tudors series kind of fumbles now, pretty with a few familiar folks, yet a bit of giving up the ghost. Or maybe that’s Catherine Howard’s ghost running down the halls…

People of power can be intriguing. I’ve read books on Cleopatra, Ceasar, Elizabeth, the many queens of Henry VIII… I love reading about women who rise to power and survive treacherous terrain with the intrigues of court.  Elizabeth certainly. Her rise to power was treacherous indeed, yet she conquered and OWNED that office until her last breath, long down the road.

Perhaps I’ll meet a boy today on the phone, who wants to be owned and conquered. I might conjure a fantasy about a poor man, guilty of intrigues against him, thrown at My mercy, begging for his life. If he were pretty, or wealthy enough, he might be of use. Unless there’s a skill he has yet to show Me…
