Going Back Home with C. S. Lewis
Nov. 17, 2010
It is interesting, how after 20 years, something takes on a whole new meaning when it is encountered again. I recently experienced this when I came across the quote below from C. S. Lewis' work "Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold". I am glad that I am not the same person I was when I first read this so many years ago but there is apart of me that wishes I had seen this before. Regrets over so many lost opportunities, I think . But that is the past I can enjoy this insightful passage. Thanks Mr Lewis!
The sweetest thing in all my life has been the longing — to reach the
Mountain, to find the place where all the beauty came from — my
country, the place where I ought to have been born. Do you think it
all meant nothing, all the longing? The longing for home? For indeed it
now feels not like going, but like going back.
