It’s Summertime and one of my favorite pastimes to beat the heat of the season, is to sneak away for a few hours and read a great book. I know, even I chuckle when I think that I spend most of my days writing books, articles and blog posts and yet what do I do for fun, I read! 🙂
Reading has been without a doubt my favorite pastime since childhood. I have fond memories of my first books, including the lavishly illustrated Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh and the little Golden Books, remember those? Many memories of my childhood can be recalled by the books that I was reading at the time, including my pre-teen years when I was wrapped up in Nancy Drew and the Little House on the Prairie – Laura Ingalls Wilder series. I still remember the day that I read my first classic, Treasure Island, which was quickly followed by Kidnapped. I soaked up every word and each book was an adventure into foreign lands and new schools of thought.
My grandmother was the kindest woman in the world who shared my love of reading and during the Summer, we would set out twice a week to the library to check out new books and return those that we had read as quickly as we could in order to enjoy the next. I still experience the same sense of reverence and nostalgia each time I walk into a library today. To me, it’s a magical place where I never know what special book I might come across during my visit.
Around the age of eight, I began to explore further in the library where I delightfully discovered the books on ancient mysteries, paranormal and supernatural topics and monster tales. Coming from a unique background of having psychic ability and seeing ghosts, I was relieved to find books actually written on these topics so that I could review what others had seen and experienced on the subject. I still find this as fascinating today and it is the reason that I created the Explore Your Spirit with Kala Show, so that authors, teachers and researchers would have a place to share their work and their knowledge with people who are interested and fascinated by these topics. In my own way, I’ve created a virtual library here on Explore Your Spirit, so that anyone who is interested can listen to the interviews and find out about the authors and their books.
It’s a labor of love that connects my passion for books, the supernatural and sharing information with others in my goal to Educate, Entertain and Inspire. My wish is that the shows here on the Explore Your Spirit with Kala Show provide all of these things here for you and more.
During the summer season, I’m also going to share the books that I’m currently reading and my thoughts about them. Some of the choices will be books that I pre-read for an upcoming interview on the Explore Your Spirit show and others are ones that have caught my attention for one reason or another…
Looking forward to sharing these books with you and hearing your thoughts about the books presented.
All the best,
