Christie at Whistling in the Dark is talking about her favorite character: Jo March. Jo March is my favorite second favorite character, second to, of course, Anne of Green Gables. Christie talks about stealing some of their magic, and I agree. We want part of their magic. That’s why we dream, why we read, why we act, why we watch movies or plays or musicals.
I want to be Anne because I love her whimsy and her candor. I love the child who wasn’t afraid and the woman who never lost her childlikeness. I love that she embraces life and always loves right where she is.
Let’s start a club, a what-character-do-you-want-to-be club. It could be like Halloween, except better.
Who do you want to be?
