  • Guest Article for Dawning Thoughts

    If you have ever had conversations with children, you may notice that they are often very excited about themselves – the things they’re doing and what they’ve accomplished. Even when they are a bit shy, you can often get them to open up by discussing something that centers around them. This is normal (healthy, even) […]

  • A New Year’s Ritual, by Dawn Star

    One of the presents under our tree from Santa this year is a package of flash paper.  Flash paper is very thin and maybe it has some flammable substance imbued in it.  You can write or draw on it, but when you touch it to a flame, it goes up in a flash leaving only […]
