How nice!


This is beautiful. You are a wonderful writer and have great insight into the magic and mystery of reading a great book.

Emily K

"You simply can't sit there decoding chapter after chapter when it comes to Narnia; you have to enjoy it as a beautiful and moving fantasy first, and then let the beautiful and moving reality that it represents dawn on you slowly."

This is so so true. I learned that the hard way when I chose to read Out of the Silent Planet for an assignment in school last year. >.< I become so overwhelmed with picking out specific symbolism, character motivations, etc during the first read that I felt as if I was learning less from it than I might have if I had read and experienced it naturally. :/

Good post ^.^

  • Eternal Father, I offer thee the most precious blood of thy divine son, Jesus, in union with the masses said throughout the world today, for all the holy souls in purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, those in my own home and within my family. Amen.
