Will be laying a flower on his grave this evening

Postby Baynesman » 04 Aug 2010, 13:32

I'm due to be in Oxford tonight and I'll be near Professor Lewis' grave.

I'll lay a flower and give a silent "thank you" from us all.

I hope to be able to see The Kilns and the CS Lewis Wildlife Reserve which is lovely and, I suspect, has the inspiration for the episodein LWW where Jadis and one of her dwarves change into boulders to escape detection - you can see the two rocks in my "CS Lewis etc Day" thread.

Regards

Mike

Makes me wish I was there too. Thank you. And I thank you also for posting those excellent pictures of yours!

The longer I live, the more I am amazed at CSL's influence upon the way I look at the world and at the way his writing has lost none of its freshness since I began reading him over thirty years ago.

I hope this comes out OK.

Pleased to see that I'm not the only one remembering.

Thanks for the kind words.

Regards

Mike
