I’ve been reading “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” to Caleb and Eli in the evenings. Caleb has been on the edge of his seat during parts of it, wondering if the Witch will turn Edmund to stone, if Aslan will die, if the Witch eats children.
We finished the book last night, and in the closing pages was this wonderful passage which I’d forgotten:
“And they made good laws and kept the peace and saved good trees from being unnecessarily cut down, and liberated young dwarfs and young satyrs from being sent to school, and generally stopped busybodies and interferers and encouraged ordinary people who wanted to live and let live.”
If I ever run for office, there’s my platform.
