What I’m Reading: Some magical quotes from “Magical Child”

I’m still reading Joseph Chilton Pearce’s “Magical Child.” Rather than bore anyone with my attempts at a book review, I thought I’d share a slew of quotes and notes I found interesting amid the next few chapters. Chapter 2 – Matrix Shift: Known to Unknown “The womb offers three things to a newly forming life:Continue reading “What I’m Reading: Some magical quotes from “Magical Child””

Dry-erasing the memories as a new chapter starts

It’s been an emotional 24 hours, and it all begins with a dry erase board. What? A dry erase board? How much wallop can a piece of plastic sitting on the refrigerator really pack? Quite a bit, actually. You see, the dry erase board has been hanging on our fridge from the day we firstContinue reading “Dry-erasing the memories as a new chapter starts”

Being Sick

You don’t usually think too much about being sick other than the “ugh” feeling that comes along with it during the entire ordeal – until you have a kid. For the first time in these past six weeks since he was born, sickness has hit the household, and it’s not just me. Within the pastContinue reading “Being Sick”

Our latest reads

It’s no secret that I absolutely love reading to my son. I don’t know if, at just a few weeks old, his mind absorbs anything of what I’m actually saying so much as just listening to his father’s voice, but either way, it’s one of my favorite parts of the day. I try very muchContinue reading “Our latest reads”

Regrets, I’ve had a few (tv edition)

Sorry for the Sinatra (or Sid Vicious, based on your musical tastes) reference, but ever since this weekend, I have carried with me a great sense of regret. After our boy got his very first bath in the kitchen sink, I sat him down on my lap and watched some classic 1940s Donald Duck cartoons.Continue reading “Regrets, I’ve had a few (tv edition)”

Go slowly sands of time…

Time is moving by at an alarming rate. I am unable to fathom the speed with which the past nine months have flown by. It seems like only a week or so ago that it was Halloween night and we sat there, slightly late for our rehearsal of “Arsenic and Old Lace” at a localContinue reading “Go slowly sands of time…”
