"I know I'm not so freckled as I used to be . . ."

" . . . so I have much to be thankful for."
—Anne Shirley, from Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

Passed my skin check with a new dermatologist today. Whew! The doctor made an allusive comment comparing me to Anne and seemed taken aback when I understood it. I may have been more surprised that he was making it, but then again, Anne's complexion is practically a main character in the book . . . maybe he read the novel as a child and it inspired his career direction!

I see that Anne turns 100 this year. Here's an interesting tribute to the book's longevity from Margaret Atwood.
