Written out in the spring

Last weekend, I borrowed a book, “Further Chronicles of Avonlea”, from my friend. The book, a collection of short stories by L. M. Montgomery, includes a number of stories relating to the inhabitants of the fictional Canadian village of Avonlea located on Prince Edward Island. One of the stories really touched me, coz it relates to the spring, my favorite season,

“It was in the spring that Josephine and I had first loved each other, or, at least, had first come into the full knowledge that we loved. I think that we must have loved each other all our lives, and that each succeeding spring was a word in the revelation of that love, not to be understood until, in the fullness of time, the whole sentence was written out in that most beautiful of all beautiful springs.”
Dear readers, walk around, open your eyes, and be awed by the timely coming of this year’s spring. Share love, share happiness. I hope you would have a wonderful springtime with your beloved ones!

  1. Riku, if you are interested in reading Montgomery's other books(the Ann series) I think I have a few of them, and will be only happy to lend you. Just let me know. FYI, whether Ann really lived or not, there's the house, the railway station, in fact, a whole village (the setting) where Ann lived and loved.

  6. I love direction of your snapshot. The above picture is beautiful and elegantly standing out right before me.

    I was just about to complain about the cold weather that has been this way for the past few days but now, I am to enjoy the cold air as I walk outside today.

    Thanks for reminding everyone and of course me about how important it is to feel lucky that we are alive to rejoice the moment :)

    Best Regards
