I was born into a family of book lovers. Both of my parents read to us, wonderful tales like “The Wizard of Oz,” “The Hobbit”, “The Secret Garden,” and many more. I loved not only the tales, but the hard back books beautifully illustrated.
As a child, my father moved all of us around a lot, for no tangible reason. This was hard, particularly the time we moved to Ireland and had to give away one of my favorite dogs ever, Clark. One of the stable things in my young life were the books, placed into rough, hand-made book shelves my father would build each time we moved. To this day, I always feel comforted when surrounded by shelves and shelves of books.
So, in honor of the love and comfort books have given me now for over 50 years, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite books from the metaphysical section of my library. These are books I have read, earmarked (now with new book darts that don’t ruin the page!), recommended to others, and plan on keeping until I, too, yellow, crinkle, and dim. I hope to share with you the delight, insight, and other experiences these books have brought to my life. So, come with me! Let me show you the first book I have taken down from my overcrowded bookshelf.
