A blog I enjoy reading is called “The Rabbit Room.” I subscribe to the feed and don’t always read the entire post but the other day they put up this quote by C.S. Lewis which caught my eye.

…only Supernaturalists really see Nature. You must go a little away from her, and then turn round, and look back. Then at last the true landscape will become visible. You must have tasted, however briefly, the pure water from beyond the world before you can be distinctly conscious of the hot, salty tang of Nature’s current.

My oldest daughter has recently been introduced to Lewis through Narnia. We have begun to read the stories and her ability to make the connections between the story and the Story amaze me. Lewis was  a brilliant writer and I appreciate much of what he has to say. Although I had never read this quote before I rather enjoy it and agree with it.

The quote and post can be found here.
