Marinated Kohlrabi and Mango Salad

Sunday Firesides: Blessed Are the Restless

When a young C.S. Lewis would gaze out the windows of his nursery, the landscape of green hills in the distance would fill him with pangs of yearning.  Nature would continue to stir these inconsolable longings throughout his life , as would encounters with literature, music, art, and friendship. In these “Tantalizing glimpses, premises never quite fulfilled,” he heard the echoes of a yet-to-be-realized Paradise.  “We do not want merely to see beauty,” he wrote of the ache these hints insp...

The Point of No Return

In Act 1 of a story with a 3-act structure, the protagonist often reaches the point of no return. Their old world crumbles, and they stumble forward into a new world, often reactively at first. There is no going back to the old world. In a novel or movie, there may be multiple progressive points of no return, each creating a deeper level of commitment and increasing the protagonist’s risk as well. Once Neo takes the red pill in The Matrix, he can’t go back to his old life. The old reality ...
