”Are you not thirsty? said the Lion.



”I’m dying of thirst,” said Jill.



”Then drink,” said the Lion.



”May I—could I—would you mind going away while I do.?” said Jill.



Frantically Jill says, “I daren’t come and drink.”



”Then you will die of thirst,” said the Lion.



”Oh dear!” said Jill, coming another step nearer. “I suppose I must go and look for another stream then.”



”There is no other stream,” said the Lion.

Tim's authored four books, including the children's book Shine So Bright and the critically acclaimed Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society. He studied beauty in the works of C.S. Lewis for his PhD under Alister McGrath. When he's not scratching poetry, or chasing the scholar's craft, you can find him carving up the trails of the nearest national forest on his Salsa El Mariachi 29er.

He lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wife and three pixie-daughters, and two acres of Great Horned Owls.
