Beloved are the Chronicles of Narnia to many individuals young and old. I became enthralled with the magic within when I was young and from there I have read the series at least every other year. I always enjoyed rereading The Horse and his Boy. It’s a story of reinvention. Lewis’s characters live on the pages as a testament to what can be if we choose to reclaim what was lost.
But Narnia was not meant for one person or one dream. It was meant to be series of lessons that can be learned to create awareness.
So if you ever find yourself being pulled into another land (whether by a horn, a magical ring or the urge to walk through a wardrobe) and you find yourself in a forest lit only by a London lamp; consider it with joy.
