I love the first snow of winter with all the possibilities of snow angels and snowmen, and skating, and drinking hot chocolate cupped in cold hands with steam defrosting your eyelashes.

115. "A picture held us captive. And we could not get outside it, for it lay in our language and language seemed to repeat it to us inexorably"

Spoons are pretty cool, manners get you far, and you'd be amazed at the applications for Elmer's glue.
A Novitiate can be defined as either the time or state of being a novice or a house where novices are trained.
Novices are new to the subject.
Welcome to your Novitiate.
(That’s our house.)
You will arrive a novice human, brand new to our species.
Who knows what experience you’ll bring to the game?
Past lives or old soul?
Brand new or wide open?
We’re thrilled to have you.
Your Papa and I can’t wait to show you what we’ve learned about being a human.
Spoons are pretty cool.
Manners get you far.
And you’d be amazed at the applications for Elmer’s glue.
There are two great things about you being you in this Novitiate.
You can either take that information we share with you and run with it, or
you can reject that information and find your own human truths.
But try to wait until you’re a teenager to reject that information.
We need to feel sage for at least a few years.
