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 Pooka, a small but fierce gray tabby. 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.

The Reality of Being


I had a revelation last night. I realized just what Descartes did when he reasoned “I think therefore I am.” The “I am” is all important; when you say “I am” you are saying you exist, you are real, you … Continue reading

Last night I saw a Tree of Life diagram you had created matching my special life moments with yours. It was based on the wonderful; evolutionary relationships of our life in union as One. I was on the Gospel side … Continue reading
