Peter Pan Day

“All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Happy Peter Pan Day or really, J.M. Barrie’s birthday! J. M. Barrie authored “Peter Pan” as a play first in 1904 and then as a novel in 1911.  Cheers to this Scottish author and playwright for creating such a memorable set of characters and story!

To celebrate, make some pixie dust, go on an adventure, tell a good story, battle a pirate, and act like a kid! Or pick up the original book and read it today!

“To live will be an awfully big adventure.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Happy Peter Pan Day!

Kanga

“A Kanga is generally regarded as one of the fiercer animals. I am not frightened of fierce animals in the ordinary way, but it is well known that, if one of the fiercer animals is deprived of its young, it becomes as fierce as two of the fiercer animals.” ~ A. A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

The fictional character of Kanga is the mother to Roo and a great friend to the others in the Hundred Acre Woods in Winnie-the-Pooh. I love her sweet and caring nature to Roo and all the rest of these characters. I love how she calls them “dears” and enjoy her sense of humor too. She’s a pretty cool mother character!

Cheers to all the moms out there today! Hopefully you get some time to read a great book today! I’m looking forward to reading and spending some time with my Roo’s! 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!

Star Wars Day

“Jedi do not fight for peace. That’s only a slogan, and is as misleading as slogans always are. Jedi fight for civilization, because only civilization creates peace. We fight for justice because justice is the fundamental bedrock of civilization: an unjust civilization is built upon sand. It does not long survive a storm.” ~Mace Windu, Shatterpoint, by Matthew Woodring Stover

Say “Star Wars” and most people will think about the amazing movies, but many novels have been written about all these creative characters and stories. George Lucas created this magical franchise with the first film back in 1977 and it operates now as a huge enterprise!

Enjoy a few minutes and read one of the many Star Wars books or comics out there!

Happy reading! May the 4th be with you!
