Sunny Days

by on October 2, 2011

As I can’t think of anything original to post right now for Day Two of NaBloWriMo, I instead decided to follow classic blogosphere tradition and share a quote. Maybe I’ll make this an ongoing feature too, like the Catrina Chronicles and the 1L pop-culture moments, and so on and so forth ad infinitum, ad nauseum. At any rate, this is one of my favorite quotes, and I suspect it’s the reason why I prefer rainy days. Sunny days, with a cloudless sky especially, give me the willies. I don’t like picturesque sunsets either, because those always remind me of the scene in Dinosaur where Aladar the Iguanodon and his lemur friends are hanging out on the island enjoying a peaceful sunset moment….and then comes the asteroid. Anyway. Rilla of Ingleside, the last book in the saga of Anne of Green Gables,  does not have an asteroid (though wouldn’t that have been an interesting twist?), but it does have World War One. This quote is from a conversation just before the war breaks out, between Rilla, Anne’s daughter, and Rilla’s teacher, Miss Oliver.

“Hasn’t June been a delightful month?” she asked, looking dreamily afar at the little quiet silvery clouds hanging so peacefully over Rainbow Valley. “We’ve had such lovely times—and such lovely weather. It has just been perfect every way.”

“I don’t half like that,” said Miss Oliver, with a sigh. “It’s ominous—somehow. A perfect thing is a gift of the gods—a sort of compensation for what is coming afterwards. I’ve seen that so often that I don’t care to hear people say they’ve had a perfect time. June has been delightful, though.

AND THEN CAME THE ASTEROID. Er, sorry, war. But still….I’m half tempted now to write an Anne of Green Gables fanfic that involves an asteroid. What say, loyal readers?
