“No amount of falls will really undo us if we keep on picking ourselves up each time. We shall of course be very muddy and tattered children by the time we reach home. But the bathrooms are all ready, the towels put out, and the clean clothes are in the airing cupboard.” -C.S. Lewis, in a letter to Mary Neylan, January 20, 1942
LUCAS SCOTT AND HALEY JAMES SCOTT You know, I was sitting in class and I looked over and saw your empty seat and it struck me; that not too long ago, it was just you and me. Suddenly, it felt wrong; that you weren’t there. Here’s what I think: you stood by me when I left the Rivercourt because a voice in my head told me that it’s what I had to do. So I’m here for you, Hales. And I always will be. Even when I don’t understand it.
