This cardboard box
is filled with very important people from our childhood.
It houses the voices and magic of make believe worlds found in bedtime stories we heard night after night.
From Tom Sawyer the mischievous hooky playing; wanna be pirate.
To Huckleberry Finn’s vagabond, heroes state of a carefree existence.
And Peter Pan’s devil-may-care infinite soul who gave us Neverland.
On moving day; we’re always torn between less is more and we must never throw out the children we once were!

Thank you so much. I was really nervous about posting on a PAGE other than my own. I’m in the great company of writers on The Wellness Almanac.
I suppose hesitation is removed the moment we decide to take a step. Great work and none can compared.
Exactly! All the uncertainty about being a contributing author dissapated. I can do this.
This 100% feels like the blessing I need to hold on to things that are hard to let go of. I mean, there’s decluttering, and then there’s Peter Pan and Wendy, and Anne of Green Gables, and, Jo and Laurie, you know… friends and allies who were there for you in ways that you needed, but could never quite articulate… Welcome to the Wellness Almanac! Thank you for bringing your beautiful way with words, and way of looking at the world, to this space, Lois!
Yes, there’s comfort in those familiar stories, like old friends. Whether the books are physical or if they live on, in our inner child. We take them with us, wherever we go.
Visiting occasionally, embracing and being embraced.
Thank you so much for the opportunity to test my legs out on this new venture Lisa. I feel like the new kid at a new school walking around all wide eyed.
