simply magical day

I awoke in Narnia this morning. Beautiful, glittering, crystal Narnia. I think the weather should interrupt routine more often. After a morning of worship, a lovely long lunch with a friend, an investigation of some ice patterns in the abandoned archive hallway, and a cancellation of all my classes I didn't think the day could get any better. Then I found it. A wonderful cozy little room tucked away upstairs in the library. Complete with warm lamps and a little loveseat. I found some of my favorite children's books and thoroughly enjoyed a lovely hour of solitude. (Despite the occaisonal reprimanding look I got from the librarian...I don't think he knew quite what to do with me all curled up in my seat, books strewn everywhere.)

(I felt this book was a necessary read today)

(this one reminds me of home, and many childhood days spent going to the blueberry & blackberry patch)

(...and this book...well everyone who knows me well knows that this is my absolute favorite book, and no day of reading would be complete without it.)

A walk through Narnia was the perfect ending to my delightful day. Most importantly I was reminded today of just how absolutely lovely it is to be a child.

"The end of childhood is when things cease to astonish us. When the world seems familiar, when one has got used to existence, one has become an adult." -Eugene Ionesco

your day sounded LOVELY! libraries, loveseats, and children's books always make a great combination. :) When i was working on my senior project/children's book...i definitely spent WAY too much time in the children's-book-section, "researching"...

(and i love blueberries for sal.) :)
