Marie ...you are never far from my thoughts especially on this day. Two hundred and eighteen years ago today you faced the greatest of outcomes and your courage always has given me courage. Thank you for being my inspiration in my darkest hours.
I found it fitting that instead of re-posting the same historical great paintings of Marie that instead we go with the fantastic Vogue photo shoot for the Marie Antoinette movie.
"She faced death with absolute self control and dignity, and stepped gracefully, even with hands tied, to the scaffold".
