Right now, I'm reading:
All of your sixes and the cards on the free, on-line poker table.

My favorite story of all time is:
any number of Dr. Seuss or Richard Scarry stories

In bed I like to read:
the colors behind my eyelids to look for shapes and plot out a dream adventure to carry me away

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
a pace a snail would laugh at. somewhere along the line I forgot how to read.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
the inability to turn an idea into a reality

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
ask her out. pursue any dream.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
The Pretender by Jackson Browne

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
my father to my mother over coffee on the back porch (that was choking me up as I thought of it)
