I saw this the other day ..

......and thought WOW similar feeling, issues, and sentiments that are discussed here everyday

It was fun to plug some of today's "what if's " into their lives and extrapolate possible outcomes.

There's a wonderful book about her, I think by her son, called "Portrait of a Marriage". I read it a long time ago, so I might react differently now, but at the time I found it very powerful.

I liked this quote:
'I think the secret of a successful marriage, is the capacity to treat disasters as if they were incidents and not to magnify incidents into disasters.'

I was wondering where I remembered the name Sackville from, then realized it was The Hobbit/LOTR ;-)

Strangely enough, I stumbled across this article about the marriage of Adam Nicolson, the grandson of Vita Sackville-West and author of the initial article posted here.
