a long, long time....

so it has been...there's been a lot on my mind and i haven't been able to put it into words.... i still don't think i can, but here are some random tidbits from my life....
i've noticed on occasion that the kids at work tend to fall asleep faster at nap time if we're playing classical music rather than any old music. so i brought in my prince caspian soundtrack (which is not classical, but it's wordless....plus, i really like the songs at the end of it). this was a bad idea, because it made me want to watch the movie. if you've been reading for awhile, or if you know me, then you know the my love for narnia. and after i saw caspian in theaters (3 times....it's a long story), i wrote this about it. i wasn't a fan at first, but it grew on me. anyway, i finally went and bought it. and watched it the first chance i had. i just love it. everytime i watch or read the movies or books, i find something new to learn. it speaks to me in a new way everytime. so …
