Just finished watching the DVD Shadowlands which I bought during the Christmas break. As a matter of fact, I first saw this movie close to almost ten years ago by now, but happy to say I was still touched by the magic all the same.

This is the story of C. S. Lewis, who is perhaps nowadays more well-known for his Narnia books than any of his more serious works. Despite giving the world the magical world of Narnia, this is the tale of his own discovery of magic outside the safety of books.

A couple gems of quotes:

“We read to know we are not alone.”

“The pain now is part of the happiness then. We can’t have the happiness of yesterday without the pain of today. That’s the deal.”
