Tanis Helliwell's Newsletter

This nice lady wrote Summer With The Leprechauns and Pilgrimage with the Leprechauns.  I enjoyed both works.  My Dad and his wife sent the first one to me as a gift.  They work best as fictional stories since that way you can enjoy them without asking yourself whether you believe in Leprechauns.  I do believe in elementals and the Loch Ness Monster, thank you very much.
If this grants them greater reality I am happy to share it.  If the same principle works in reverse then I don't believe in people who undermine programs helping children thrive and learn.

Withholding belief: a story.

A college roomate returned from a break with this tale involving withholding belief.  She'd been at a casino with a friend.  They'd both read the same self-help book about choosing your own reality.  A man in a seat which backed up to theirs was berating his wife.  The two young women were increasingly horrified on her behalf.  My friend, Ellen, turned around to address the man bullying his wife.  She said pointedly to him, "You are Not a part of my reality!"Tanis Helliwell's Newsletter
