Favourite Character

November 9

It builds character
Tell us about a favourite character from film, theatre, or literature, with whom you’d like to have a heart-to-heart. What would you talk about?

Know how I had this segment on this blog – Frost’s Favourites. And then I just dropped that off. I mean I do have favourites, but I suddenly stopped writing about it. This prompt is about a favourite character. Obviously, I am going to choose one from a book.

Now, that is a difficult task. Let’s see, I have a whole lot of favourites… Jo March, Heidi, Colonel Brandon, Tyrion Lannister, Dickon (from The Secret Garden) and oh so many more. I think today I would really like to talk to Dickon since he seems like someone who would let me talk my heart and listen to every word being said.

The Secret Garden has been a favourite book of mine since I read it the very first time. It carries within it a certain magic, one that nourishes hope and shines softly on an otherwise gloomy mood. What is not to love about it. And the children! Mary, Dickon and Colin such an adorable bunch of kids who find their own way. Dickon with his gift, with animals and humans alike, is loveable. He would in real life be the friend that everybody needs. A person to let us be ourselves, accepting of us without judgement and showing us love and respect no matter what. Someone one can depend on without a niggling doubt.

If we sat down to talk about, I am sure we would be able to talk about anything and everything under the sun. Dickon, with his experiences, would probably be more learned about the influences of the solar flares on the well being of his beloved woodland creatures than any scholar. He would see the world much differently than most people. Through his eyes, the world would seem a much more reasonable and lovable place. A place where kindness is the norm. Dickon is one of the best of the best!

I just love how some books have these awesome characters that one can fall in love with for eternity. Authors create magic when they give us these characters, an everlasting magic. What a wonderful ability they have!

Let me not ramble on anymore. Who is your favourite… Who do you want to have a chit chat with? Let me know. Maybe you can blog about it as well. Link back if you do and I will know. 🙂
