In late winter and early spring, my thoughts always, always turn to “Anne.” I’m serious! It may be because the first time I ever watched the Kevin Sullivan production of Anne of Green Gables was during that time of year…at a time when I was feeling really low and out of touch with myself…and I can honestly tell you that “Anne” found me!
As I watched Anne of Green Gables that year, it was like a little light began going off in my brain…like a little voice was whispering, “Oh yeah! That’s right! That’s who I am!” It was weird…the way a movie (and the the book) could put me back in touch with my core self. And weird though it may have seemed, I was soooooooo grateful for the experience and to L.M. Montgomery for writing the “Anne” books!
And so, every year at this time, I find myself longing for a little escape into “Anne”…into her world…into Avonlea…not to mention the romance between Anne and Gil! I mean, who doesn’t love Gil, right? Seriously…what a guy!
I’m not going to ramble on today the way I usually do…because if you’re an Anne of Green Gables fan, then you understand my feelings. And if you aren’t yet an Anne of Green Gables fan…rush out and become one! AND this week’s contest is one way to do that!
But first…the winner of last week’s Zorro contest is…Brynette McKinney! Brynette…e-mail your snail mail address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can pop your Zorro DVDs in the mail to you asap!
And for this week’s contest…whether you already love Anne and Gilbert or whether you still need to hop on the bandwagon how about this…the audio (CDs) version of Anne of Green Gables!!! Yep…here’s your chance to listen to the book I love so very, very much! Just leave a comment here concerning anything “Anne”-ish and you’re entered!
I could truly write a book on why I love Anne of Green Gables! So whether or not you’ve ever read the book or seen the movies…this audio version will be a treasure! I LOVE “Anne!”
