Today we had a refreshingly calmer day after two busy days of traveling. After church we ate at the Eagle and Child pub. The “Bird and the Baby” as it’s sometimes referred to, was a favorite pub of CS Lewis and JRR Tolkein. It’s there that they ate, wrote, talked and became the “Inklings.” You can see pictures here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inklings).
From there, we walked about 2 miles north to Wolvercote Cemetery to see Tolkein’s grave. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolvercote_Cemetery)
But tonight, when all the students were at 9@9 and I was home with all the bandwidth, I had a wonderful conversation with my dear friend, Dava Lynn. It was such a good taste of home, and I love and miss her (and so many other people so much). If I we’re more dedicated to my blog, I would have used that time to upload pictures. But now, the students are skyping and my pictures won’t upload.
And I wouldn’t change a thing.
But you’re welcome to blame her if you’d like.
