notting hill/marc chagall

It's official; this four-day Patriots day weekend in Boston has already established itself as chick flick weekend.

Last night: Mean Girls.  Tonight: Notting Hill, a.k.a. one of my favorite romantic comedies ever!

So artistic inspiration for today is the Chagall painting, La Mariée ("The Bride," 1950), which features in the film.

"It feels like how love should be - floating through a dark blue sky."
"With a goat, playing a violin."
"Well, yes.  Happiness isn't happiness without a violin-playing goat."
