I mentioned, a couple of posts ago, reading Letters of C.S. Lewis.
And this one, on the next page, I thought was adorable. Can you imagine an 18 year old boy having the courage to admit these kinds of feelings? That's one of the things I find so appealing about him.
Here's one more passage, skipping five years down the road, to whet your appetite for more. You'll probably need to click on the photo to get the larger version so you can read it.
I think he loved many of the same things that I, and many of my blogging buddies, love.
He led a fascinating life, and I think this is one of the most interesting ways to learn more about him. Thanks, Mom!
Two more of my favorite people, Audrey and Hazel, are always doing fun and fascinating things. The other day while visiting, I referred to A & H as "you guys". Audrey looked at me quizzically and said, "Grandma, we're not GUYS; we're GIRLS! We're GIRLS; we're not BOYS!" I considered trying to explain myself, but then I could only smile. She was right, after all.
That very evening Audrey and Hazel's dad and grandpa went blueberry picking in Grandpa Doug's woods. Daddy Adam came home after everyone was in bed for the night, so he left the bowl of blueberries on the kitchen counter with a note, "Be sure to inspect and wash before eating." Well, Miss Audrey was the first one up in the morning and when Mommy Micah found her she was standing by Hazel's crib sharing the almost empty bowl of blueberries with her little sister. Hazel had both fists full of blueberries and they were really enjoying themselves. Who needs television with this kind of entertainment?
I'm off to eat breakfast and then to work. Have a great weekend, everyone!
Shalom to you.
