Window Friend

February 08, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

One of my all time favorite books (and movies) is Anne of Green Gables.  My best friend and I would watch it over and over when we were kids, so naturally we can still recite the lines whenever we think of them.  I snapped this photo of my daughter looking out of the window, and seeing her reflection made me think immediately of a scene from Anne:

 

  "The only real friend I ever had was Katie Morris, and she was only my window friend.  I discovered her in the window of Mrs. Thomas' bookcase."

 

Of course, as soon as I put this image on Facebook, my favorite bosom friend asked me "is her name Katie Morris too?" 

 

I guess I love that this picture reminds me of Anne of Green Gables, of the imagination that it inspired in me, and of the kindred spirits that can see the same story in this image decades later.
