Exhibition And C.S. Lewis; The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

I am not sure if you have figured it our, or even if I had explained about my youngest daughter, Sol. Sol is very talented in an artistic way, she always has a drawing book in her hand, I mean always, every day she draws and every opportunity.

Take yesterday for example, we sat in a cafe waiting for lunch and I snapped a couple of photographs. It wasn’t till last night when I looked at the photos I realised her drawing book was on the table (as usual).

I will digress and go back to what happened yesterday first, we had intended on going to see a little art exhibition. It was for talented young children who are autistic. My daughter hasn’t officially been diagnosed as having autism but she has a condition called misophonia and many children with misophonia are on the autistic spectrum. Anyway, Sol entered a piece of her art work into the exhibition and she is very proud of herself.

After checking online where the exhibition was held we went to Belfast to go see it, only to discover it was closed despite saying on the internet that they were open! Disappointed, we ended up going shopping and having lunch out. While we were on our journey we discovered a C.S. Lewis place in Belfast, it looked interesting and decided we should visit it too. It was pouring with rain so we decided not to even get out of the car and come back today instead.

Today was good, we went to the exhibition first. I am pleased to report that it was open and we got inside. Sol, was very proud of herself to see her picture on the wall.

It’s the red and black Pokemon thing which is to her left. I don’t know what the character is named, but it’s holding two other pokemon characters.

Watch this space now, the start of an art career for Sol!

After we looked around the art work we headed to the C.S. Lewis corner, which is an area Belfast devoted to the Author. He grew up here, and I believe the inspiration of the book came from a door handle shaped like a lions head in his local church which is just up the road from where we were.

We enjoyed looking around today, it really is inspiring to learn about how local, ordinary people can have such amazing talent and become successful.

Mr Tumnus.

“Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,

At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,

When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,

And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.”

C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
