The Great ...

... Divorce.

I'm not talking about mine.
I'm referring to the book.
The one that CS Lewis done writ.

I read it.

And I liked it.

I think it was very helpful that I saw the play at the Pacific Theatre in June. Otherwise I mighta bin a bit lost.

Fav Quotes:

“There are only two kinds of people in the end: those who say to God, "Thy will be done," and those to whom God says, in the end, "Thy will be done." All that are in Hell, choose it. Without that self-choice there could be no Hell. No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. Those who knock it is opened. ” 

“There have been men before … who got so interested in proving the existence of God that they came to care nothing for God himself… as if the good Lord had nothing to do but to exist. There have been some who were so preoccupied with spreading Christianity that they never gave a thought to Christ.” 

“I do not think that all who choose wrong roads perish; but their rescue consists in being put back on the right road. A sum can be put right: but only by going back til you find the error and working it afresh from that point, never by simply going on. Evil can be undone, but it cannot 'develop' into good. Time does not heal it. The spell must be unwound, bit by bit, 'with backward mutters of dissevering power' --or else not.” 

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Order
2. Blue Sky
3. Comfortable pants

I started reading this after seeing the play as well. I like the last quote you wrote. It resonates.
The line from the play that stuck with me all summer was, "I am in Love, and out of it I will not go."
