Right now, I'm reading:
Krishnamurti's, Mind Without Measure and the Liberty Tree, a book about the role of "common people" in the American Revolution. I'm also looking forward to reading a recently published book about haiku entitled, Haiku Mind, by Patricia Donegan.
My favorite story of all time is:
Herman Hesse's fictionalized account of the Buddha's life, Siddhartha.
In bed I like to read:
...nothing, as reading in bed would render this middle aged body permanently paralyzed. Very near to my bed is a desk, where I typically read books by J. Krishnamurti, the spiritual teacher who eschewed all religious traditions and beliefs, meditation practices, and gurus purporting to be enlightened. I have also found my way back to early American history, and recently read Taming Democracy and James Madison and The Struggle for the Bill Of Rights.
Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Truthdig and The Progress Report.
