“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” -C.S. Lewis
I like to think that C.S. Lewis* was right about this. There is no greater satisfaction than unwinding the stresses of the day by reading leisurely and drinking a cup of warm tea. (Some might prefer coffee over tea.) As one shamelessly in love with words and the stories they craft, this rings true to me. It is my hope to share my love of various twenty-six letter combinations with you!
*For those of you who don’t know who Clive Staples Lewis is, he was a British writer who wrote The Chronicles of Narnia. (Yes, his middle name was Staples.)
You might be wondering how I came to settle on the name “fragilemyths.” After recalling a game of telephone that I played years ago, I came to the conclusion that the best myths, stories, and folklore stay aflame because the people who love them keep them burning brightly for the next generation. The cycle continues. And that is how simple stories can secure spots in the libraries of classics and become so beloved. But there are also the more fragile myths. Combinations of words easily lost and forgotten into the oblivion of ages past. Be wary of time’s capricious nature!
