“There is no excess of goodness. You cannot go too far in the right direction.”
Have you read the first published work by C. S. Lewis after he converted to Christianity? I had never heard of The Pilgrim’s Regress until I discovered this quote, which I love. Written in 1933, Lewis describes his allegorical fiction novel as “a kind of Bunyan up to date.” I might just give it a read.
The man at the box office seemed unsure when I told him I was the guest of a VIP.
“Hmm. What’s your name?” He checked his list, found my name, and gave me a look that conveyed “Should I know you?”
I played along and gave him my best movie star smile. “I have a friend on her way. Please be sure she is given a seat if I’m inside when she arrives.”
The December day was gorgeous — sunny and warm as usual in this part of the country. As I waited in front of the theater, I noticed a woman staring at me. After an awkward few minutes of smiling at each other, she approached me. I did not recognize her, and my mind started doing that “going through the faces file” thing. Nope. She was not there.
