    All about Channeling Erik On October 6, 2009, my 20-year-old son Erik, took his own life. Since that sad and tragic day, an overwhelming sense of grief and despair propelled me into a search for answers. Answers that would provide me and others with comfort and hope. Some of those answers came from the many […]

    Okay. I messed up. I didn’t put the tail end of yesterday’s post so go back and read it if you want. I think it’s because I’ve been so busy. Our housekeeper of 25 years who is part of the family and helped me raise my kids is having a triple bypass so I’ve been […]

    So many of us let the world beat us down. Some do that constantly; some do that from time to time. So this wonderful post will help us all. Usually I have more of an introduction but you need to dive int these words of Erik right away. Plus I don’t have anything to say. I’ve […]

    This next topic is dear to my heart, having raised 5 kids all of whom are headstrong and independent from birth. They didn’t insist on what brand of diapers to buy or whether to put a touch of scotch in their bottle but… Actually, I breast fed so I’d have to be the one nipping […]

    On Saturday, a documentary producer is flying all the way from Oslo to film me about Channeling Erik. Then he flies to Atlanta to film Jamie. It seems as though Channeling Erik is starting to get the notice we all hoped for. Exciting! I’ll let you all know what happens.  The weather across most of […]

    I’m baaaack, ready to put my nose to the grindstone and post Erik’s wise and sometimes blunt insight. I’m so sorry that I wasn’t attentive to your comments, so if I didn’t answer them, it’s okay to repost them. I miss you guys!  Now for an announcement:  Jamie and Erik are going to have another […]

    I haven’t gotten many signs from Erik for a while, so I’ve been fussing at him a lot, threatening him with the notorious “black time-out chair” but my idle threats were to no avail. (That boy spent a lot of time in that chair. We gave it away, but I bet it has his butt […]

    Before I share this stellar insight from Erik (and I must say, he’s been on a roll. Lot’s of good stuff,) I want you to know that my sister and brother-in-law are coming into town so I won’t be posting anything from Monday through Thursday. Hope this one makes up for it, though! Uncertainty is […]

    I know I’ve plastered this all over Facebook, but I want to announce here that I found out Jamie isn’t accepting just 13 participants for the Channeling Erik Weekend of F-ing Enlightenment in Denver. (Why in the hell did I pick that number? I don’t know. Senile, I guess.) She’s accepting 30. Even though the event is […]

    I don’t know why I’m telling you this because it has nothing to do with today’s post, but when I was a third year resident in Internal Medicine at UTMB Galveston, there was one day when I was post call after a hideously brutal day and night. To have a little respite, I decided to treat myself […]

    I hope you all had a great weekend. The weather here in Houston has been wonderful, but call me crazy, I spent most of yesterday with my nose to the grindstone working on book related homework my publisher gave me. It’s something I love though. Anyway,  my husband was racing his motorcycle on the track […]

    The “Erik Encounters” page finally works, thanks to blog member, Terese Newman!  If you’ve had any crazy pranks or visits from that mischievous boy, share them on that page. We all love them. I had a couple of  pretty cool pranks, the most recent one yesterday. Okay. The backstory. As you can imagine, my days are […]

    Today is kind of a busy day. No, a really busy day. I don’t know how I’m going to finish! Plus, my vision is a little blurry this morning, so that makes everything a bit slower. That said, I’m not going to start with a big fanfare, and please excuse the lack of editing. Even though […]
