- A Prairie Home
Companion: I frequent
this little spot when I need my Garrison
Keillor fix. He's a master story
teller, who's tales of his fictional home
town, Lake Woebegone, are full of quirky,
yet real characters that fill your heart
with laughter and tears. His
stories rank right up there with L M
Montgomery and Mark Twain.
Minnesota Public Radio is kind enough to
offer us his performances on line in real
audio format. You can choose to
listen to the whole show, or just
sections. I usually just listen to News
from Lake Woebegone.

L M Montgomery
on the Birth of Anne of Green Gables
All my life it has been my aim to write a
book- a "real live" book. Of
late years I have been thinking of it
seriously but somehow it seemed such a
big task I hadn't the courage to begin
it... Two years ago in the spring of 1905
I was looking over this notebook in
search of some suitable idea for a short
serial I wanted write for a certain
Sunday School paper and I found a faded
entry, written ten years
before:-"Elderly couple apply to
orphan asylum for a boy. By mistake a
girl is sent them." I thought this
would do.... Somehow or other she seemed
very real to me and took possession of me
to an unusal extent. Her personality
appealed to me and I thought it rather a
shame to waste her on an ephemeral little
serial. Then the thought came,
"Write a book about her."...
The result of this was Anne of Green
book may not sell well. I wrote it for
love, not money-but very often such books
are the most successful- just as
everything in life that is born of true
love is better than mercenary ends."

"I'll never forget the days of
my youth. When the waves rippled between my toes,
taking the pink and silver grains of sand back
out to the depths of the sea. There was a peace
then; an indescribable feeling of imortality in
the eb and flow of the tide, and the seemingly
endless streatch of beach and sky. Now as I gaze
out upon those same sparkling waters, I realize
that youth is never left behind, but is carried
always, gently, in the heart."

Peace! You never know
what peace is until you walk on the shores or in
the fields or along the winding red roads of
Abegwaite on a summer twilight when the dew is
falling and the old, old stars are peeping out
and the sea keeps its nightly tryst with the
little land it loves. You find your soul then...
you realize that youth is not a vanished thing
but something that dwells forever in your heart.
And you look around on the dimming landscape of
haunted hills and long white sandbeach and
murmuring ocean, on homestead lights and old
fields tilled by dead and gone generations who
loved them... you will say, "Why... I have

Old Scotch Islander I met once in Winnipeg. He
was always talking of
'the ISLAND.' Someone asked him, 'What Island do
you mean?' He simply
looked at that ignorant man. Then he said, 'Why
Prince Edward Island,
man. What other island is there?'
