Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

If God Had a Face


"Who made these mountains?"

"God." (plate tectonics—same thing)

"No, he didn't!"

"Sure he (she, it) did. God made the whole world."

(chuckle) "God didn't!"

"Who, then?"

"I did!"

"It's beautiful. Thank you."

"I made it when I was three years old. Don't you remember?"

"I do now."

"I made the mountains and the trees and the bushes and the rocks and the houses and the fences and the whole world. When I was three."

Sweetest thing I've ever heard. I LOVE how kids think they made the Universe (because, at least in my case, my toddler DID make my life).

Wow. I had a very similar conversation with my now 4 yr old a few months ago. Isn't the toddler ego something incredible to behold?! Thanks for the giggle.

You know, I've heard of the Messiah Complex, but this goes a step beyond that--it's a Yahweh complex. Not that there's anything wrong with that....

Beautiful. Simply beautiful.

I've never had a desire to have children, but when I read things like this, I think to myself, "You MUST have children. There will be no greater joy than that."

with love from Pittsburgh...
