Something jump inside....

<<“They say Aslan is on the move - perhaps has already landed.”And now a very curious thing happened. None of the children knew who Aslan was any more than you do; but the moment the Beaver had spoken these words everyone felt quite different. Perhaps it has sometimes happened to you in a dream that someone says something which you don't understand but in the dream it feels as if it had some enormous meaning - either a terrifying one which turns the whole dream into a nightmare or else a lovely meaning too lovely to put into words, which makes the dream so beautiful that you remember it all your life and are always wishing you could get into that dream again. It was like that now. At the name of Aslan each one of the children felt something jump in its inside. Edmund felt a sensation of mysterious horror. Peter felt suddenly brave and adventurous. Susan felt as if some delicious smell or some delightful strain of music had just floated by her. And Lucy got the feeling you have when you wake up in the morning and realize that it is the beginning of the holidays or the beginning of summer.>> C.S. Lewis. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe – Chapter 7

  2. @ Marcela :) Are you reading the stories to your kids yet?

    @ Ines, oh wow, you should definitely read them. They are full of fantasy, magic, fun and wisdom. I have them in Mexico, double, when I go, if you like I can send them to you since I believe in the re-circulation of books, I mean, books were not made to gather dust in a shelf :)
