C.S. Lewis remembered

In a total diversion from my established theme here, I am pausing to remember that one of my most admired men, C.S. Lewis, died on this day in 1963. In his honor I quote him here:

"Then Aslan turned to them and said: 'You do not yet look so happy as I mean you to be.'
"Lucy said, 'We're so afraid of being sent away, Aslan. And you have sent us back into our own world so often.'
"'No fear of that,' said Aslan. 'Have you not guessed?... all of you are--as you used to call it in the Shadowlands--dead. The term is over; the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.'"

From "The Last Battle"
