In 6th Grade we had a long term substitute teacher who would read to us in the afternoon. I loved it. I think she is the reason I love storytellers. They have a gift. And her gift allowed me to vividly immerse myself into that story. It was wonderful! The book our substitute read to us was A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle. My 12 year old self was mesmerized. Every page turned, took me on a vivid adventure right along with the characters. Until this experience reading was more about homework and things I HAD to read. This opportunity to sit and listen to this incredible book changed my whole view of reading. Reading could be fun and it could be magical. And I was hooked.
A few days ago, when Sid came home, I asked her what she wanted to do while she was here. She said that she wanted to take me to see the movie A Wrinkle in Time! HECK YEAH! I was so excited. I am pretty picky when I see movies and don’t see many because of it. Not because I’m a big film critic. It’s my attention span, HA! If I’m not interested, it’s AWFUL! Anyway, I absolutely loved A Wrinkle in Time. It was visually breathtaking! WOW! And the characters had my heart just like they did when I was 12.
Well, I hope you all have a day where you revisit your childhood!!!
