Summer Reading and Marble Halls of Moonshine
Posted by Leigh at Thursday, July 11, 2013
Last night, I started rereading one of my totems of childhood, the Anne of Green Gables collection. I've missed you, Prince Edward Island (or, PEI as we local armchair travelers - here's looking at you, Dwight and Jeanne - call it).
"I had made up my mind that if you didn't come for me tonight I'd go down the track to that big wild cherry tree at the bend, and climb up into it to stay all night. I wouldn't be a bit afraid, and it would be lovely to sleep in a wild cherry tree all white with bloom in the moonshine, don't you think? You could imagine you were dwelling in marble halls, couldn't you? And I was quite sure you would come for me in the morning, if you didn't tonight." -Anne of Green Gables
