For as long as I can remember there have been two fictional characters that I felt deeply connected to: Alice in Wonderland and Anne Shirley (of Anne of Green Gables, etc.). I'm not entirely sure why. Could it be that I am extremely talkative, curious, opinionated, I like to explore? It could be a lot of things. But, ever since childhood I've felt a kinship to these girls. I still think of myself as a girl, and though I've changed a lot and I am definitely an adult now, some things don't change.
