I am a huge Harry Potter fan. (Yes, you may have noticed a reference or two.) I really identify with Hermione– from the books and the first movie, before they made her hair all sleek. (Not that there’s anything wrong with sleek hair, it just makes it harder for me to relate. Remember?)
In addition to wishing I could cast spells (I once pretended to unlock a drawer with a chopstick and an “Alohomora!” to which my brother, clever one that he is, promptly replied, “I’m a nerd-a!” true dat…), I also think that the books have some really great lessons. And who amongst all the characters is wiser than Albus Dumbledore?
No one! That’s who!
The quotation above is one of my favorites, but there are so many. One of the main reasons I look forward to having kids someday (in addition to love and joy and other feelings, blah, blah, blah…) is because I really, really want to read the entire Harry Potter series out loud. Really.
With my central theme for the week being the idea of light, I thought this was appropriate. And with that, I’m off to Mexico tomorrow to bask in light of magnificent proportions– hasta la vista!
(Also, trying not to get my hopes up too high (too late), but after Mexico we head to Florida for a few days (I know, my life, right?!) and there is a chance that we may have the opportunity to drive to Orlando for a visit to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. OMG!)
