NY Mysteries May 1, 2020


 Remember in the olden days when we went to museums, to dance performances, to the movies, to the opera, to dinner parties, to restaurants? Our isolation reminds me of C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia. One of the characters yearns for the days when Narnians were free to mingle, when Narnia wasn’t smothered in snow and ice and the machinations of the evil, frosty queen.
