I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

I love these books. I've read them time and time again. I think the first time I read them, I was seven. They are great books for not only children (which they were specifically written for) but also adults. Books like this are soooo much fun.

I saw previews for the movie coming out and it looks awesome.

There's a dear little plant that grows in our Isle
Twas St . Patrick himself, sure, that set it;
And the sun of his labour with pleasure did smile,
And with dew from his eye often wet it.
It grows through the bog, through the brake, through the
Mireland, and they call it the dear little shamrock of Ireland.

I re-read The Magicians Nephew and The Lion Witch & Wardrobe back during the summer, anticipating the movie that comes out this Friday. It had been so long since I'd read them I'd forgotten a lot. I see the movie ads are touting the film as 'an epic' but I bet C. S. would shake his head and say they're just a fairy tale.

I read in a bio that the idea for LWW was born when during the WWII bombings of England's cities, C. S. offered his home as a shelter for children evacuated to the countryside. A little girl asked if she could play in the wardrobe she found in a room, and a few years later he began writing the story! Sweet.

With special effects as good as they are now, finally the book can be made into a really good movie - I've got my hopes up.


"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."
