The Fall of Man

“The Fall of Man opened a chasm filled with fire between the real and the ideal; between truth and goodness. The bridge of beauty is damaged beyond repair, yet join the two sides we must, by making our own existence into a path across the Abyss for others: everyone who does so becomes both Hero and King… Tolkien saw in the Christian revelation the meeting and fusing of Legend and History, and in the Body of Christ the restored bridge from this world to the other. All along our hearts spoke true. They were made for what they long to find; nature was made for grace. The Maker himself has once and for all vindicated those fleeting glimpses of ‘Joy beyond the walls of the world, poignant as grief’, which art affords us.”

—Stratford Caldecott

I’m usually a laid back person. I love to read. I’m a history nerd. If I could go back in time and meet just one person it would probably be Pope John Paul II. I’m married to my best friend. Fall is my favorite season. The Giant Panda is my favorite animal. I love it when you go somewhere, see something, or even eat something and it bring back memories from your past. I love the smell of rain. Oh, and by the way, I’m Leila (lie-luh).
