Sunspots 1

Katherine Fedor, at K's Cafe: The 30 Second Blog, has nailed a lot of us again, and in probably less than 30 seconds. She begins: "Opening my laptop is practically lethal to whatever else I'm doing. It's like diving into the deep, dark chasms at the bottom of the ocean. There's almost no return. . . ."

Don't tell my wife. You don't have to.

Ish commented, wanting to know what the point of cataloging the temptations in the Narnia books might be. Good question. My answer is threefold:
1) Moral choices are usually the most important parts of a story, and temptations, by definition, are moral choices. Consider, for example, Frodo's choice to take the ring to Mordor, and Galadriel's choice not to take the ring when Frodo offered it.
2) The first word in the description of my blog is "musings." One reference says that musing is "a calm lengthy intent consideration." It doesn't say there has to be a point or purpose! Sorry. Sometimes, for me, there probably isn't.
3) I wanted an excuse to re-read the books.

Thanks, Ish.

How creative we can be! Here are some interesting titles for blogs:

Not Crunchy, Pseudo-Polymath, Revenge of Mr Dumpling, Hapax Legomena (I haven't a clue what that means, but the blogger spends a lot of time discussing classic--as in centuries old--Christianity), The Adventures of the Absent Minded Albino, Dignan's 75 Year Plan, Doggie's Breakfast, Unbeknown Paedobaptist, The Duchy of Burgundy Carrots, and The Wildebeest's Wardrobe.

"Hapax legomena" are those words in a text which only occur once in that text.
