The Narnian tree

For Joan, and SooT.

I always remember that part in Acts, about God giving us our places and seasons.

A tree He plants in Asia is meant to draw richly from its soil and give shelter and life in its land. Sometimes the fragrance of the plant spreads to distant places, and sometimes the wind will carry its seed away.

But as C.S. Lewis wrote in The Magician's Nephew, the Narnian tree never forgot its home.
