We are visual creatures; we are drawn to shapes and colours, and how they combine to form appealing images (or shocking, revolting, calming) depending on the emotion the author is trying to elicit. My books are in the... Read more of this blog post »

A Mary Moment Monday post


I know that, as a parent, I am my children’s first teacher. I know it as an intellectual reality, as an indisputable fact.


But what I need, so often, is to know it in my heart.
