I close my eyes and I travel back in time - 2nd grade - Miss Charlotte Bridge's class. I'm sitting on a large rug with my classmates listening to her read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. It's the highlight of my school day. It's the first time a story carried me away to another land and I have been hooked on a book ever since. Without a doubt, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is still one of my favorites. I love that it was made into a movie...and I love the character Edmund. As a child, I didn't think too much of Edmund. As an adult, it is Edmund that I identify with...He's imperfect. He makes mistakes, he sorrows over those mistakes and ultimately, he is forgiven.
