My main blog: Ramblings generally focuses on telling a story via photography and words. These stories generally center around family, nature, and church although sometimes just about life in general. I also have a blog entitled Fingerprints. I post less frequently in Fingerprints. It serves as a catch all of anything that does not go in my Ramblings blog including memes, quizzes, and reports on books and movies.

The road awaits
Time doesn't
The road beckons
Time steps forward

Will we move
In step with time?
Will we step forward
Shaping our time?

Will we take time
To see the present?
Will we explore the past
And understand our heritage?

Will we laugh?
Will we wonder?
Will we touch?
Will we feel?

Time flies on
We have choices
Shall we go fast?
Shall we go slow?

We shall go forward
But we will choose the pace
We may dance with all our heart
Or bathe ourselves in a setting sun

Empire Falls; Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe

In the past few weeks, I read Richard Russo's Empire Falls. The author is talented in creating real life characters and exploring their inner depths in a localized town past its prime. Many times, I could find myself identifying with some of the players in this story. Russo makes these characters so real that one wants to go and meet them in person.

Last night, I watched on DVD: Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. It's not a bad movie; but I loved the books so much better where the imagination could run so much more freely. And Aslan the lion in the movie did not seem so awe inspiring as in the book.

I haven't read Richard Russo, but I always felt C.S.Lewis' writing to be ethereal. And the ability to create a tale that is pure allegory, filled with powerful messages that were right there in the text for the reader to discover.
I do watch movies, but I always would rather read the book. The potrayals are more vivid that way.

Thanks, potash. I think most times movies are so much more limited in what they can convey than a book is. And that is why we're so many times disappointed with a movie based on a beloved book.
