Oh man, I am nearly shakin’ in my top hats here. I get to dedicate this entire Champagne Problem to why I want to be more like Diane Keaton. Now, in her book Then Again that came out in 2011 , Diane covers her mother, father sister, brothers, road trips collages, on camera kisses, style and salvation armies, alongside the urge to never want to be married and settle at life. All things I do and say on a day to day basis, BTW.
Diane, to me, resembles class and strength and she is a magnetic and true performer – someone that exudes individuality and expression and fears not if her make up is perfect or if her skin is flawless or if her accessories are in style. She poses in life as just her, Ms. Diane Keaton. There is something to be said about a woman who knew who she wanted to be and knew settling would tear that dream apart (or at least, stall it).
Me? Well, I find that to be the truth daily. I do not dream of white picket fences and elaborate wedding dresses. Or more, my father crying during the first dance with me. Nay, I would rather be eccentric, t0 thirst for knowledge, education and continue to question life and discover the rarities of each and every little nuance within. Do I appreciate marriage? Yes, for some it’s beautiful.
For others, I feel creatively it is a noose. A leash. something to lean on with the fear of loneliness lagging behind it, above it and all around. Then there are other times when the security of it seems right, almost natural. But I digress. The more I think about what Diane Keaton means to me, I wonder what Diane Keaton means to you. Comment below and let me know who you think should be the next Diane Keaton. Have at it, ya’ll!
