Another wonderful, wonderful response, Thx Doc
What a delightful response. I am glad that you included What girl or what "GUY" in your description of infatuation. Because I can remember not being able to get my mind off of a certain girl when I was in high school.
You make a VERY insightful observation. You say I could identify with ALL of them YES YES YES!! (We discussed that in "Where did Bella and Edward come from?" http://thetwilightsagacommunity.ning.com/forum/topics/why-did-bella-fit-in-with-the-1
Each different part of your psyche gets to commiserate with a different character.
My old psych professor said : The next time you go to a movie think!! Some of you will identify with the hero some with the heroine. SOME WITH THE MONSTER. But you special ones get to identify with all of them.
I agree with you we live in an unsophisticated world. But I feel that all of the important things in life are unsophisticated. Thank you for sharing with us, Doc
Dear Twilighted, Your response was just WONDERFUL!! Thank you so much. lol DB
Your response about how Bella was raised is just supperb. You are so right a child deserves the chance to be a child. A parents turning their child into a "friend' is so unfair. A child need a parent. Once they have been "broken" into adulthood there is no going back. How insightful on your part.
I have heard several people interpret the symbolism of Stephanie's quote from genesis. But I have never heard it explained so eloquently, as you did. And so obviously correct after reading it. Thank you for sharring with us. Yours, Doc
What a great list. Isn't Esme wonderful. She is pure love.
Esme on the question of voting if Bella should be allowed to join the group. Her response basicaly is how could I not accept the daughter I adore, into my family. What a character. Thanks for sharing, Doc
You make an excellent point Edward never did seem to know how Bella would react to different events. And I agree with you that the romantic triangle Bella found herself in had to be resolved.
Extra credit "Women love (predominately) with their minds while men love with their bodies. What an insightful observation. I think that part of Edward's appeal to women is that because of his condition he is forced to focus on loving Bella with his mind.
Thank you for sharing, Doc B (please forgive my delay in answering)
