February 2010 was my awakening to the exquisitely talented, kind, handsome, intelligent, compassionate, professional, and philanthropic British gentleman actor Richard Armitage with his mesmirizing performance as John Thornton in the BBC’s 2004 production of Elizabeth Gaskell’s love story “North & South” (left via RANet).
Six years on, my admiration for Richard Armitage (right, via Laura) continues to grow as I look forward to experiencing his many upcoming storytelling projects. And I tender my grateful thanks to him for inspiring my own creativity in storytelling and such. Finally, the friends I have met and made across the globe these six years among his admirers are a joy and a blessing.
Thank you, Richard, for these gifts of storytelling, inspiration, and community that you share with us. And in return for you, Richard? As always, I wish for you every happiness that you wish for yourself. Hugs & Love! Grati ;->
