C.S. Lewis...

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket- safe, dark, motionless, airless--it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable.”
I wonder if C.S. Lewis would like the movies that have been made and are going to be made of his books. I liked The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe very much. The Lion is so beautiful. I hope the next one will be as good. C.S.Lewis was an amazing scholar whose wisdom is still a blessing. My friend Liz posted a quote here that she likes and it reminded me of this one that I like.

I love CANDY!

Someone asked me the other day what food I would survive on if I could have just anything I wanted. I didn't really want to tell this person that I am already on the Eat What You Love Diet (this title is copyrighted... I'm writing the book... sure to be a bestseller!) and I mostly just love candy. That's why it's so hard for me to eat 5 a day (fruits & veggies) for better health. If you eat all that healthy stuff, there will be no room for the candy.

If we are going for elegance... I love this candy. But, I am not as elegant as I would like to be so I'm pretty happy just at the grocery store. I love ju-ju bunnies! LOVE THEM! and Swedish Fish. I even like the smarties that you get at the bank (why didn't I ever grow up?) I adore tootsie rolls and one of my favorite things of all.... KISSES!!! Chocolate and affection in every bite!
Sometimes the Kisses people really mess up... like when they took the old Christmas mint kisses and put the yucky green goo inside. YUCK!
However, I hear they have redeemed themselves from the green goo incident with the Toasted Coconut Triumph! I am going to get some today and I'll let you know... Do you have a favorite? I might need to try it!
