We're currently listening to C. S. Lewis' The Magician's Nephew, which has risen to the top of my favorites list. Today's portion especially, as the great lion Aslan speaks life and breathes intelligence into the new world.
"Narnia, Narnia, Narnia, awake. Love. Think. Speak. Be walking trees. Be talking beasts. Be divine waters."
"Creatures, I give you yourselves," said the strong, happy voice of Aslan. "I give to you for ever this land of Narnia. I give you the woods, the fruits, the rivers. I give you the stars and I give you myself."
