‘It’s a magical world, Hobbes, ol’ buddy… Let’s go exploring!’Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes)
Since I’ve begun this blog while on a break from university, I have become increasingly convinced of the importance of beauty, especially as it is communicated in and through words. Beauty is a wonderful meeting of order and surprise, a mystery which awakens man from sleep and invites him into the dreamworld of a more real reality than he had before known. Without beauty, truth becomes mere information, and virtue becomes legalism; just as beauty without truth or goodness becomes a fanciful delusion, and no longer beauty. And we are in dire need of beauty today. So here I write of a variety of things: about books that I am reading; about life and the Catholic faith in such way that, I hope, its true beauty is more clearly revealed; and about literature in general, or else I shall write literature itself (poetry or short stories). My intent is that you find here some things that inspire you to ponder, to wonder, and to seek more elsewhere; to move continually further up, and further in! (C. S. Lewis, The Last Battle)
