The Musical Dunes of Narnia

My photo, please don’t pin or take or anything. Thanks! :)
Dear Readers,

This last Sunday as we were coming home from church, I stared out the window of the vehicle we were traveling in. The drifts of snow on the side of the road were pretty high, probably about a foot or so. The wind was blowing, making the loose pieces of snow fly and skitter across the ground. The way that the snow lay in the drifts almost looked like sand dunes, the way they skittered and lay. But I knew that if I touched them, instead of feeling the warm grains of sand, I would feel a bitter cold.

Today, the snow’s all crunchy around here, and some of it has actually melted off. (Except I think that might’ve happened before today...) It’s pretty cold out, but there’s not really any wind. It’s kind of funny, when the New Year came, I almost felt like it should be almost Spring again. But, really, winter’s kind of just started, though going closer and closer to the middle. (Weird to think it starts in like the middle of December. I feel like it should just start on December 1st...)

Lately, I’ve been listening to some “new” songs that we’ve found. (I put them in “”, because some of them aren’t really that new, I just haven’t told you about them. Of course, they’re from January, so I suppose they kind of are new...) One of my favorites is a song from a little short called Paperman, which is like one of my FAVORITE SONGS EVER to listen to now. =)


(And that’s it, right up there.^) Seriously, I love it so much. <3 It’s so like soothing and happy and sad all at the same time... Have you guys ever heard it before? :) I’m planning on getting this with some of my iTunes money so I can transport it to my writing computer. :)

Another song I’ve really been enjoying lately is Closer to Your Heart by Natalie Grant. OH. MY. GOODNESS. LOVELOVELOVELOVE. =D Seriously, though, the word’s are good and the music’s catching and.... yeah. I just love it. <3


(Have you ever heard it before? Do you like it?)

Anyway, so last night I was watching The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawntreader, and I just want to say... that movie seriously has some funny parts. (“This place just keeps on getting weirder and weirder!” haha one of my favorites lines. :D And then the one before it... “The pig!” bahahaha) I love the part with the seagull and the minotaur and Eustace and the sailor dude, too. (Eustace: *talks to a bird* Minotaur: “He’s talking to a bird! hahahaha!” Random sailor dude with no name apparently: “Mad as loon, that one!” [I realize that all of my quotes so far probably haven’t been perfectly accurate, but I guess they’ll just have to do... ;)]) And I always get so sad at the end because of Lucy. You can just see that she never wants to leave Narnia, and she wants to see Aslan again, and now she knows that she’s never going to go back. (OK, seriously, I like barely ever feel sad about stuff like that, because I always feel so... weird. But I had to hold back tears. Big time. *sniff sniff*....) Lucy’s always been my favorite. (Which is partly the reason why I was so ecstatic when I got her in a quiz I took...)

Anyway, hope you all have a great day! :) God bless! :)

Be a hero,
Anna

P.S. I was thinking about doing a quiz soon. Thoughts? :)

P.P.S. Remember when I told you that I usually do post titles after I’ve written the post? Behold the randomness. lol =D

  2. It's funny, because I just watch The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe yesterday, haha. And oh man, the end of Dawn Treader seriously crushes my heart. I remember one time I was watching it with my dad (I'd already seen all the movies/read the books trillions of times, but I was doing it with him because he hadn't) and when the credits rolled I just started sobbing and my dad looked at me like I was crazy, haha. :)

  3. I was Ms. Beaver in that play, haha. And my brother was Mr. Beaver. I got really mad because this kid in the audience laughed when Aslan 'died'. :)
