“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” – C. S. Lewis
The Chronicles of Narnia
One of the nice things about growing older is the opportunity to go back and reread the books that you loved reading as a child. I recently did that with the “Chronicles of Narnia.”
As a child, I read for the love of the adventure, not being able to turn the pages fast enough to satisfy my need to know what happens next. I still do that. But I also sometimes take time to look for deeper meanings.
It was easy to find them in Lewis’ Narnia, which he wrote about in seven fantasy novels for young people. The books sold over 100 million copies, and are now being made into movies that have hit it big at the box office.
I guess I’m not the only one enchanted by Lewis’ imaginative mind and words.
