Today C. S. Lewis takes on change.  Apparently, he is for it — ugh!

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird; it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.  We are like eggs at present.  And you cannot go on indefinitely being just and ordinary, decent egg.  We must be hatched or go bad.”

It occurs to me how comical it is, the degree to which I fight change.  Any change I fight is an effort to keep something as it is, but of course the “something as it is” I am fighting to keep was, at some point, the change I was fighting to avoid while I was clinging to its predecessor.  John Prine is right – “it’s a big old goofy world!”
