Yes! I’m certainly a book ‘Roo, hopping from room to room seldom without one within range.
The day cannot be spent totally on reading books, there's so much else to do. However, the books to be read beckon and call out from the pages, every time I walk past. My dreamy mind envisualize’s the next page and all the wonderful new information it may contain. Can’t I abscond from the present for just a moment and retreat to the land of rapture and learning?
For instance! Have you ever heard the word ‘Somatization?’ Well, it’s a very sad state of existence, when a person truly believes with all sincerity they have some major illness. Symptoms present continually to the sufferer, so surely there is a problem? After repeated doctor’s visits and numerous test’s nothing is found. To the professional eye they certainly look well. And believe me…. there are many ways to sight a physical illness, without a word expressed.
One must also remember of course, we can actually become ill if we believe it with enough intensity.
My newest acquisition is a thoroughly perceptive book written by a friend named Bill Conway. You meet many wonderful people through these Blog’s. Bill is one who I met here, he goes by the name of Beggar….So take the time to click on his name and read his posts, he will delight you.
Bill is a sensitive Christian author and an academic with a brilliant mind. His book featured below is written in conjunction with two other doctors. It leads you on a journey of discovery into the relationship between the unconscious mind and many physical traits of illness.
It’s a great book that may be used as a reference for doctors, psychologists or just the average person who desires to understand more…..

Late in 2008 I began to explore and enjoy the realm of creative writing. This is something which has always been an interest yet until now,I haven't found time to indulge. God is the cornerstone of my home and heart. He is my life and my breath, for without Him I am nothing. My desire is to edify His existance in my daily walk through life. To inspire and encourage the broken hearted. And to assist in the knowledge that EVERYTHING has a reason and a purpose under the Heavens.
