Right now, I'm reading:
In My Own Way by Alan Watts an autobiography

My favorite story of all time is:
Of Mice and Men, Don Quixote, Cannery Row, The Celestine Prophecy, Atlas Shrugged, The Fountain Head, oh my, too hard to narrow it down to just one. There are so many great stories out there.

In bed I like to read:
Novels, Nonfiction, but mainly books

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Salon.com, American Songwriter, Reader's Digest, Writer's Digest, National Geographic.

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?
Positive thoughts breed positive action, BUT I can't get anyone to believe me! So I am surrounded by so much negativity :o(
