Of Love and Gratitude
tribute to Vincent and Catherine's anniversary
April 12th, 2012
Love is the main inspiring value of Beauty and the
Beast, but there are many others. In the series Vincent and Catherine
show how these values are enhanced by love, and we have been
exploring them since
2007, in this annual tribute
celebrating the anniversary of the wondrous night they first met: Hope, Courage, Dreams, Compassion...
the BatBland co-owner, came to the rescue with a moving compilation of
the gratitude-related scenes and quotes from the series. Thank you, Je,
you rock. And after the Chan vignette challenge, one of the
contributors had asked help with another story, which we had saved on
an online shared writingboard to discuss my proposals for editing:
guess what?, it focuses on a frustrated longing to express gratitude.
Thank you so much, Bluebird, for agreeing to post it now.
When Gratitude was chosen for this year, I did not expect it
would have been so appropriate. Ten days before April 12, my computer
crashed. All of my recent stuff was lost, including the April 12
celebration draft, and all of my tunnel mail and addresses. And it was
the Easter week, not exactly the best time for arranging a plan B. I
thought that BatBland was not celebrating April 12th this year.
"gratefully" found out that after all, we could celebrate "Of Love and
Gratitude" with two offerings. The pages are very simple, as I lost
also the programs I'm familiar with and I'm working on a borrowed
computer, but I hope you'll enjoy the contents rather than the package.
And... if you want
to contribute to enrich this "basic" celebration, here is a little
gratitude-themed challenge for you:
Write a max
100 words paragraph, conceived as a line of dialogue between our
starting with "Thank you, Catherine (or Vincent)..."
and ending with the word "love".
Send it to batbland at gmail dot com, and I'll upload it in this page.
Vincent and Catherine, and... thank you, for everything!
So many ways to
say “thank you”
and screencaptures from the episodes
Thank you... love”
