    I have read most anything by C.S. Lewis and highly respect him. I also write poems and consider him kind of my mentor (not only for poems) . Of course I never met him, but in his writings and recordings. The poem 'The Future of Forestry' impressed me and inspired me to write a little short story and a poem as kind of a sequel to it.

    Hey I'm a big fan of C.S. Lewis and agree with his views. I'm reading 'Mere Christianity' now and i just have this problem with the Law of Nature. Remember, i think he's a genius and hence i think he's right; so I'd love someone to blow this query out of the water.

    I think he states that this 'standard' is ingrained in all (or most) of us, that we cannot get rid of it. This standard we all have he says must have been given to us by some other mind or being which is God. The problem i have is this: Could we not find or create this standard ourselves by simply putting ourselves in others shoes and treating others how we would like to be treated?

    After reading some of his books, I have come to love Lewis. He has been catapulted to the top of my favorite authors list. I can't wait to meet Lewis on the other side.

The Meteorite

Among the hills a meteorite
Lies huge; and moss has overgrown,
And wind and rain with touches light
Made soft, the contours of the stone.

Thus easily can Earth digest
A cinder of sidereal fire,
And make her translunary guest
The native of an English shire.
