FEAR NOT....

I am reading a biography on Elizabeth I by Alison Weir.  A very well written book.  Elizabeth was a force to be reckoned with.

"Fear not, we are the nature of the lion, and cannot descend to the destruction of mice and such small beasts."

~Elizabeth I~

    1. Still, though...she was a force to be reckoned with, yet squeezed herself into a torniquet like corset anyway.

  3. That is a great painting that I haven't seen before. She was a powerful and fascinating queen. I read another book by that author, can't recall the title.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
