Breathe a sigh of relief with me as I ponder the effects this will have on my writing and on your reading. Though I don't have a new post for you on Queen Victoria, I do have some research perking in the wings. That means that I will have a post for you next week.
I will be introducing the Aesthetic (Late Victorian) Period and the final years of transition between Queen Victoria and Queen Alexandra. This period is filled with renewal...a renewal of intricate and delicate jewelry, a renewal of hope for a nation left too long in mourning, and the renewal of innovation in science, medicine, and the arts. I look forward to delving quickly and deeply into this part of Queen Victoria's reign.
For now, I leave you with a photo and a quote:
