~ Karen Blixen ~
Those words have haunted me since the first time I saw the movie, "Out of Africa." I have no idea how many times I have seen this movie (probably dozens) but each time it fills me with admiration for Karen Blixen. Meryl Streep protrays Blixen as was such a strong woman.
Each time I watch the movie, I tell myself that I need to read Blixen's books and stories research her life to see how much of the movie is based on fact. I haven't done that yet, but a quick search today gives me an idea.
I still want to read Out of Africa and Letters from Africa, but for today, I am once more lulled into a different world and a different time by the words, "I had a farm in Africa. . ."
