Maybe you look at this photo and want to write your own story. Perhaps if C. S. Lewis was here he would read a chapter to us from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. He might even read the ending to the chapter titled: Peter’s First Battle. “Then, after a bit, Susan came down the tree. She and Peter felt pretty shaky when they met and I won’t say there wasn’t kissing and crying on both sides. But in Narnia no one thinks any worse of you for that.

“‘Quick! Quick!’ shouted the voice of Aslan. ‘Centaurs! Eagles! I see another wolf in the thickets. There behind you. He has just darted away. After him, all of you. He will be going to his mistress. Now is your chance to find the Witch and rescue the fourth Son of Adam.’ And instantly with a thunder of hoofs and beating of wings a dozen or so of the swiftest creatures disappeared into the gathering darkness.'”

This photo was taken of the path on the way to the Chimney Tops—a rock formation in the Great Smokey National Park. Around here we just say, “The Smokies.” I can’t wait to meet up with my friends Ann and Marc in the park this summer. It has been way too long since I have seen them.
