The title of this blog is taken from a quote from C.S.Lewis in 'The Abolition of Man':
"To treat Nature as God, or as Everything, is to loose the whole pith and pleasure of her. Come out, look back, and then you will see... this astonishing cataract of bears, babies and bananas: this immoderate deluge of atoms, orchids, oranges, cancers, canaries, fleas, gases, tornadoes and toads. How could you ever have thought this was the ultimate reality?... Offer her neither worship nor contempt."
My life is pretty full of bears (teddy bears), babies (well they're 4 and 7 now) and plenty of banana eating.
