About thebows99krug

Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017. I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.

God is LOVE!


Sometimes while reading a Facebook friend’s post I find myself in Julian of Norwich’s small cell and see the stone around and feel the dark and see bits of her vision. This moment stayed in my head and this morning … Continue reading

That one kiss from my beloved spouse the day after she had died saved me from despair. That she lived still with Christ was beyond debate. We were still one with each other and God. One thing I know, that … Continue reading

Sex in Heaven


Very interesting passage from C.S.Lewis ‘Miracles’: “We know the sexual life; we do not know, except in glimpses, the other thing which, in Heaven, will leave no room for it. Hence where fulness awaits us we anticipate fasting. In denying … Continue reading

Marriage is fulfilled in Heaven


When looking within I usually find myself in a house, a small circle of consciousness in a dark house. I have always wondered at the darkness. I frequently felt Pat’s presence and thought she should show up as another bright … Continue reading
