starlady: the Pevensies in Lantern Waste (narnia)
As well as being Martin Luther King, Jr., Day in the States, today is the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Patrice Lumumba, the first elected president of what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. I recommend Adam Hochschild's piece in the Times to everyone.

Lewis, C.S. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. New York: Harper Collins, 1994. [1950]

I can remember this book not being my particular favorite when I first read the books in fourth grade, and I can see why; it's one of the shortest of the books, and on reread it's surprising to me how much of it doesn't actually take place in Narnia--not until the beginning of chapter 6 do Peter and Susan get into Narnia--and how quickly it feels like things wrap up once they do. Not know the Queen of Narnia? You shall know us better hereafter. )

At last, a new chapter. The series has gotten a lot more interesting and amusing lately, I have to admit.

Apples were made to be gathered, also the whole host of the/world’s ailments and troubles. )
