As if it Meant More

I’m reminded of C.S. Lewis’ description of the new Narnia in the final book of The Chronicles of Narnia, The Last Battle. 

Lewis says of this new place: “Every rock and flower and blade of grass looked as if it meant more. I can’t describe it any better than that. . .” 
Later, the Unicorn explains that it was the land he’d been looking for his whole life, but that he had loved the old Narnia because “sometimes it looked a little like this.”
Here, I find nature meaning more. It gestures to another place that, at its best, looks a little like the New. 
But it’s not quite home.

  1. Having come through cancer, Polymyositis, and various and sundry other medical misadventures, too numerous to mention, I will say that it all means more (even if it is just my temporary home ;o)
