    "i Stood Bewitched..."

    When I was young, probably far younger than you'd expect, I was assigned to read an excerpt from the auto-biography of Mark Twain "Life on the Mississippi" as part of my English class. That story gave me a deep-seated sense of worry. You can read it yourself if you like it...

    Return To Innocence

    I'll admit that much of the time I'm stuck in the mud of adulthood.  But then there comes that moment of wonder, a moment that freezes me in my tracks and leaves me with an astonished smile on my face.I saw a blue heron today.  Seeing it, and identifying it as it flew over me...

    Second Childhood

    Having my children has allowed me to do the things I never got to do as a child and has taught me so much about how to play, have fun, and learn about the world over again through the eyes of a child.

    Simplicity

    I remember watching Narnia, when Lucy stepped out from the wardrobe into virgin snow. Her eyes were wide, as a smile crept upon her tiny mouth. Her mind ran wild with the images before her. The simplicity of what she saw was like a dream. The colours more vibrant, the sounds...
