C.S. Lewis

If I could choose one person dead or alive to go back in time and meet, it would be C.S. Lewis. Here is a quote that I found of his that I find simply stunning:

"You don't have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body."

Anyone heard of Brooke Fraser? An Aussie singer/song writer that sings with Hillsong? Well she wrote a song about my man C.S. and here are the lyrics:

If i find in myself desires nothing in this world can satisfy,
I can only conclude that I was not made for here
If the felsh that i fight is at best only light and momentary,
then ofcourse I'll feel nude when to where I'm destined I'm compared

Speak to me in the light of the dawn
Mercy comes with the morning
I will sigh and with all creation groan
as I wait for hope to come for me

Am i lost or just less found?
On the straight or on the roundabout of the wrong way?
Is this a soul that stirs in me,
is it breaking free, wanting to come alive?
Cuz my comfort would prefer for me to be numb
And avoid the impending birth
of who I was born to become

For we, we are not long here
Our time is but a breath, so we better breathe it
And I, I was made to live, I was made to love,
I was made to know you
Hope is coming for me
Hope, He's coming

Brilliant song, brilliant lyrics, brilliant man.
