Writing is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement. Then it becomes a mistress, then it becomes a master, then it becomes a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster and fling him to the public.

— Winston Churchill

A Mommy Post

I’m interrupting my schedule of perversely picking on my husband, or the contemplation of social ills and family quagmires to bring you a Mommy Post. I’m over-the-moon, jumping-up-and-down excited. Wanna know why? Well of course you do, don’t tease me like that.

Last night our son Aaron read an eight-page book to us. Oh yes he did. My little guy has proudly started reading and I know I’m a dork for thinking this is the most exciting thing since Earth was created or humans discovered sex, but I believe this is the beginning of something great.

I’m thrilled at the idea of all the different places he’ll discover through reading; all the different characters, cultures, perspectives and journeys he’ll glimpse in pages and pages of words lovingly strung together by a host of authors. Whoever said power and money make the world go round is wrong. It’s words, baby. All the power is in the words.
