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.

We are God and us!


Amazing Grace is what we desire before we find God. We shall still desire it on our deathbeds, when the mind longs for beloved wife and friend. Love, by definition, seeks to be loved. A departed spouse is Love as … Continue reading

A New way of praying?


Woke this morning feeling very strange. There was something new in my being. A new sense? I was aware of knowing something momentous but not what it was. It was like feeling the end and the beginning. Feeling like something … Continue reading

Patricia is always present!


Patricia is a presence within, a presence infinitely beyond the senses, a presence that is elusive but, nearer than my heart; yet like my heart, I feel her there within. I Hear her hailing me from beyond the grave and … Continue reading

Life, love and the hereafter.


Modern physics tells us that the universe had a beginning (the big bang) and will have an end. “No philosophical theory which I (C.S. Lewis in Miracles) have yet come across is a radical improvement on the words of Genesis, … Continue reading

Spirit to spirit


Pat, I was talking to God last night and your image (not your name) came up. You realize that we (and God) no longer use words to communicate? Prayer too often uses words and thoughts to communicate spiritually but words … Continue reading

The Resurrection of the body!


Christmas is all about God becoming man — Christ is both man and God. What does this mean? Most of us ordinary mortals don’t really feel like God and don’t behave like Christ did. Our life ends just like the … Continue reading

Death is no more there is only Love!


You have found your “One” when in your heart of heart you feel you have found she who you have desired all your life; yes the One you have desired all your life. At your first meeting there was a … Continue reading

The Bible is a Library!


The Bible is not one book nor is it history in the modern sense. The Bible contains works of poetry, myth, religious-themed narratives, philosophical musings such as The Book of Ecclesiastes, letters, and the apocalyptic masterpiece known as The Book … Continue reading

Patricia and I, One forever!


I believe death is not a loss, because as a Christian I believe in eternal life. Both Judaism and Christianity share common resurrection beliefs according to their authoritative Scriptures. While in Judaism resurrection refers to the Jewish individual in particular … Continue reading

We do see our Beloved Departed face to face!


As if to prove what I wrote yesterday was incorrect, I had a dream last night where I SAW Pat face to face and she was very real. I borrow from C.S. Lewis “The Great Divorce” to describe Pat in … Continue reading
