These are a Few of C.S. Lewis’s Favorite Things (To The Melody of The Sound of Music)

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cute Kitten

Okay, lets be honest, those are not a few of my favorite things. I don’t really like cats. I do kind of like warm woolen mittens. I prefer books and coffee and gourmet food. Those are a few of my favorite things. The truth is, all of us have our own “favorite things” and C.S. Lewis was no exception.

I have been reading a fantastic book by Jim Belcher titled In Search of Deep Faith: A Pilgrimage into the Beauty, Goodness, and Heart of Christianity over the last few days, and in it I came across a quote by C.S. Lewis where Lewis describes some of his favorite things to a dear friend named Arthur Greeves. Here are a few of C.S. Lewis’s favorite thigns:

My happiest hours are spend with three or four old friends in old clothes tramping together and putting up in small pubs – or else sitting up till the small hours in someone’s college rooms, talking nonsense, poetry, theology, metaphysics over beer, tea, and pipes.

So now you know…. C.S. Lewis was a hipster. Pubs, old clothes, beer, poetry, theology, metaphysics, talking nonsense, and tea. A hipster indeed.
