Further Up - East Missoula, Montana

"A long valley opened ahead and great snow-mountains, now much nearer, stood up against the sky.
"Further up and further in," cried Jewel and instantly they were off again." - from The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis (1898-1963)

Today is C.S. Lewis's birthday; the world is a much more intelligent place thanks to his thoughtful and entertaining contributions to literature, radio, and scholarship. When I remembered (a bit belatedly) that November is his birth and death month, I thought it fitting to use quotes from his works for the remainder of the month. Coincidentally, I've been listening to several of his audio books in recent months, so timing was perfect, as I had a little mental quote stash ready to go. Whether Narnia or otherwise focused, Lewis's books are engaging AND consistently  provoke me to question and stretch my thoughts toward the best ends. For your pondering pleasure, a list of his books available via The Gutenberg Project can be found here. Bon appetit!
