A Literary Walk #11

The walking tour continues,
this time into one of the greatest seats
of learning in the world,
20 miles
To view the places that inspired 2 great 
First up: C.S. Lewis
The pub where the "Inklings" hung out
and discussed ideas.

I like all the books in the Chronicles of Narnia
but "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is the 
one I love best.
Favorite Quote
"Please, Aslan," said Lucy. "Before we go, will
you tell us when we can come back to Narnia
again? Please. And oh do, do, do make it soon."
Dearest," said Aslan very gently, 
"you and your bother will never
 come back to Narnia."
"Oh, Aslan!!" said Edmund and Lucy together in
despairing voices.
"You are too old, children,"
said Aslan, "and you must begin to come close to 
your own world now."
It isn't Narnia, you know," sobbed Lucy. "It's you. 
We shan't meet you there.
And how can we live, never meeting you?"
"But you shall meet me, dear one," said Aslan.
"Are you there too, Sir?" said Edmund.
"I am, " said Aslan. "But there I have another name.
You must learn to know me by that name.
This was the very reason 
why you were brought to Narnia."

I have never forgotten as a young girl the
day I realized Aslan was Jesus...
I remember running to tell my Mom and she
looked so surprised and said
"Oh, you just figured that out now?!"
