I first saw Anne of Green Gables on my local PBS station back in 1985. I fell in love with Anne and her talk of kindred spirits, nature and the feisty Megan Follows who portrayed Anne with such conviction that I became lost in the story. There I was a 14-year old boy who stumbled on a show about self-discovery, a woman's place in the world and the true meaning of friendship, loyalty and love.
Last weekend I was up early in order to go to my daughter's school and help put out the barricades for a 2 mile run that to raise money for the homeless. The rain came down hard, making the spring morning feel more like winter. It was only 50 degrees out and I knew that helping in the rain and then doing the run was going to be cold and I'd be drenched by the end of it.
I've had a lot of thoughts juggling around in the old noodle and I wanted to talk about love. I'm a romantic at heart for as long as I can remember. I hope, dream and always hope that the best in people will shine through and for love to win the day.
Well, during the Olympics I happened to catch Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Canada performing their ice dancing routine and I was blown away. The chemistry between the two of them was just amazing to see. Haven't seen it? Well, the best that I can do is link to their performance from the 2018 Canadian Skating Nationals.
