A friend asked me what I visualize as I swim laps each morning, six days a week. Well, in the slideshow below is my inspiRAtion. Richard Armitage is a man who claims to have a diffident relationship with water–yet he so improves the medium. Enjoy the slideshow.
Though eventually, I would miss his wonderfully broad shouldered tall presence and his long muscular arms that envelop his on screen love interests in his tender and passionate embraces. Purrrrrr!
Then closing my eyes, I would listen raptly to his wonderfully velvety deep baritone voice as he tells me a story, reads a poem, or talks about his next film or DIY project–his choice. Each intonation he makes is like a caress. Sighhhhh! The following audio book excerpt “Richard Armitage Reading Excerpt from The Lords of the North” is a video by psychomammy:
Maintaining my water metaphor as I close this post, I am so a puddle of womanly essence at RA’s feet right now. Ha!
Sighhhhh! Cheers! Grati ;->
P.S. 9/10/12–I just had to add Richard Armitage’s new character of “Gary”–in the Todd Garner film “Black Sky” (slated for a 2013 release)–to the mix of wet and wonderful images. Here is the Todd Garner picture link and then, the picture itself:
