Narnia Comes...

''This is the land of Narnia,' said the Faun, 'where we are now; all that lies between the lamp post and the great castle of Cair Paravel on the eastern sea.' ~ C.S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia


Earlier this evening I felt drawn to pull out my DVD of the Narnia movie. After the last few days being busy with Christmas festivities, it seemed a perfect way to relax by the fireplace and still keep the feeling of the season.

Then, just a little while ago, as I'm about to retire for the night, I opened the front door to find myself staring out into the world of Narnia itself... right here in my own neighbourhood.  It's been snowing without my knowing it and my world has turned into a winter wonderland.

How fortuitous, then, to find this cozy lamp post in my collection of graphics and pictures, for if you know the movie, you'll see how similar it is to the one in the movie.

How's that for art and story melting into one's life ... in real time and experience?

There seems to be something magical about it. And I realize my heart still longs for that which some will tell us is 'impossible' in this world..... and I'm grateful for people like C.S. Lewis who are able to take their own longings and turn them into something many of us connect to, not with our minds, but with our hearts and imagination.

I love little Lucy.  For her tender age, she seems is the wisest of her siblings.

(Yawn)...Time to withdraw and find my bed. On that note, here's wishing you dreams that are pure and sweet.


Hugs,

  1. I have been looking for this movie for days. It is just the sort of reminder one needs heading into the new year. How fun to have life imitate the movie. Fun graphic.

  2. Hi Brenda! How fun, what a lovely experience, it must have been so beautiful. Snow is rare here in my part of south Georgia, but when it does come; once every year or two, we all go snow crazy. Life stops and no matter where we are, everyone puts out their arms and embraces the sky. Scarves and gloves are quickly dug out of hall closets and snow balls are thrown and happy squeals and giggles fill the air. Someone starts baking or making stew and everything is special! Thank you for all the beautiful comments you leave on my blog Brenda, they mean so much to me and I appreciate them very much. Have a lovely saturday! With Love, Delisa :)

  4. I watched the movie a few weeks before Christmas. Lucy is a dear soul with deep insight. I love those moments when the world inside my head touches my physical world.
