It’s coming! I’ve heard!

The fourth Narnia film is on it’s way.

No trailer as yet, I’m afraid, so it may be a while.

But, to tide you over, watch

Or for a bit more depth for you literary, bookish types, listen to the podcast

At least there’s time to read the book (or perhaps read it again?) before the film comes out! Best to know if they’ve left out some of the best bits.

Something new to feel happy about 🙂

A little hunting at my favorite second-hand shop uncovered this treasure . . .

Lock me up in a room with this book

(and a cup, and teapot full of tea),

and I’d be quite content for a good few hours.

Ah, and what ever could I say, when there are images such as these to be poured over?

Part of the magic of living in Scotland was the possibility of getting into one’s car,

and within a few hours, being able to see the home of

Jane Austen,

or Charlotte Bronte,

or C.S. Lewis,

as we did, one lovely April.

We went to Oxford, England,

to Magdalen College of Oxford University,

where C.S. Lewis taught for nearly thirty years.

Anyone can tour it.

See Addison’s Walk along the Cherwell River,

where C.S. Lewis liked to stroll.

And his rooms at the college, now marked by some red geraniums.

 “If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy,

the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.”

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.”
