Right now, I'm reading:
I am reading The Kite Runner out loud, to my love. I'm sure this time will be twice as memorable.

My favorite story of all time is:
Lonesome Dove. Let me wipe the tears. After so many pages I've gone through boxes of tissue. I need to recycle these. Yuck

In bed I like to read:
Random online babblings. Yes, it's a word.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
Picking Up the Pieces

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Dr. Edward Kassman, psych extraordinaire!
