Traveling with a Newborn: Ocean City, NJ (Our First Trip)

As you may know, we took our first vacation with our newborn son, Weston.  He hit six weeks old half way through our trip to Ocean City.  Living and working in Philadelphia, we don’t use our car much.  On average, we probably drive it once every 2-3 weeks. Needless to say, Weston has not been […]

Nostalgia: Ocean City, NJ

Honestly, I’m not typically one for nostalgia.  I tend to forget a lot of my childhood, not because it was bad and I need to block it out, quite the contrary.  I think I don’t remember a lot because it was actually very good, and quite frankly, my life has been so far.  My low […]

A Spiritual Encounter in Sedona

….. Our conversation continues by Avi mentioning the beauty and energy of our location and Sedona in general. He then goes on to mention the tour guide who was discussing the UFOs and alien beings. He says, “I know they are real because I was abducted when I was 5. My brother too, he was about 1.5 years old. I don’t remember too much, but my brother remembers every detail because he had more recently come from the other side. So he was more pure still.”

Avi is a small man, maybe in his 60s. Long bushy eyebrows. Clean, well dressed, but wearing an old leather jacket with a curious triangular type tear on the front of his right pocket. He grew up in Israel, not sure how long he’s been in the US. ….
