Men Without Chests

I am still on my Lewis sojourn, as I have about 8 books left to read in now less than three weeks. I just finished reading his lecture, "Men Without Chests," from The Abolition of Man. If you've never read this, you should. It is so poignantly powerful and completely prophetic. The things he describes 50 years ago are far more acute today. This man had his finger to the pulse of postmodernism and has predicted every movement of it since its inception. It's amazing.

On another note, for those of you accustomed to frequent conversations with me while I'm on my cell phone, that is all going to change. For I received a bill for over $1000.00 the other day for such conversations. I'm still numb to this, and my friends and family are convinced that we are being ripped off like crazy, but the fact remains: I talk too much on my cell phone. So, if you'd like to talk to me, please call my house phone. If you don't have that number, email me and I'll give it to you.

I almost had a lapse of consciousness and put my number up here. :) I may read Lewis like I eat chocolate, but I'm still blonde.
