Thursday’s Special: Yearning

“It was not the passion that was new to her, it was the yearning adoration. She knew she had always feared it, for it left her helpless; she feared it still, lest if she adored him too much, then she would lose herself, become effaced, and she did not want to be effaced, a slave, like a savage woman. She must not become a slave. She feared her adoration, yet she would not at once fight against it.”  

– D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley’s Lover


Meet my lady Chatterley

“Perhaps only people who are capable of real togetherness have that look of being alone in the universe."

**About Thursday’s Special: It is a ‘non-challenge’ challenge that appeals to bloggers eager to wake up their creativity and show their own ideas and interpretation of the world. I invite everybody interested to join in. There are no themes, titles and techniques set for your expression, there are no limits and restrictions (no red tape whatsoever). The only thing required is to post a photo post on Thursdays entitled “Thursday’s Special: (your theme/title)” (as explained in my Thursday’s Special introductory post), to provide a link to my Thursday’s Special post, and to leave a link to your post in the comments section of my post. If you like Thursday’s Special widget, feel free to grab it and post it on your blog.

  1. Your Lady Chatterley is a real beauty.
    Enjoyed your quote. I think it is a fear of many independent women that they lose themselves completely to the will of the man the come to love.

  3. What a lovely piece of music to accompany this post. Did you make the dress for the lovely doll? I agree that the hand positioning on the doll says much. I love the end of the quote: “she would not at once fight against it”…

  5. Such a beautiful doll Paula. No wonder she is so special to you. Great post and quote. 😀


  6. You surprised me, Paula! I’d forgotten it was Thursday- don’t know why! This is so wistful and beautiful, with the gentle music as an undercurrent. 🙂

  8. I like the lighting in this “portrait shot”.

    I am starting to suspect you may have a reasonable size collection of dolls. Do you collect a particular brand?


    • Recently, a very cheap collection has appeared in local kiosks.. they are all made after literary characters and I am having a blast getting them 🙂 Thank you, Draco 🙂 🙂
