About Me

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?
Currently, and for a while now, it would be the constant wait for medical transportation due to chronic health issues and my immense patience and tolerance and gratitude that the service exists at all.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
my Nook for PC, doctors' office waiting rooms, and an occasional sneak peak in the grocery store

In bed I like to read:
my mind and try to also read the message my body gives me during a body scan

My favorite story of all time is:
An article on the importance of gesturing in Scientific American Mind

Right now, I'm reading:
Oprah's Book Club 2.0 and all the suggestions in the side bars for uplifting, positive messages

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Be a ham. Spirals down afterwards.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Someone in need of a good laugh, a bit of inspiration, and a lot of help, and by that I mean both interpretations of the word, and whom, of course, adopts a non-judgmental stance.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
"Take it easy" by the Eagles, life lesson I still need to learn and "Angels among us" by Alabama, a definite match to my belief system
