Art Expectations Day 197



Herbert tells Pip to think of how Estella was raised and by whom (the bitter, jilted Miss Havisham). “Think of what she is herself” says Herbert. Pip says he cannot detach himself from her. “Impossible!”

Herbert then shifts the conversation, asking Pip if he thinks children of unhappily married parents “are always most particulary anxious to be married.” He lists off all of his Pocket siblings as already being engaged – all except the baby, of course!

Happy Holidays to all! It’s Christmas Eve here in the States and my two kids are in their rooms making little gifts for each other. How sweet!
