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?
The magic and the mystery of attraction....the ever-changing mood of the dance. It's not a tale for the faint of heart.

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Wherever words flow, I follow. The trick is in reading between the lines.

In bed I like to read:
I never read in bed.....EVER.

My favorite story of all time is:
...the one I tell myself when I can't sleep.

Right now, I'm reading:
Jesus Cloned, by William Hagenbuch. Cuz I know the author.

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
No prince, no horse, and buy your own damn shoes.

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
There's a concept called "separate rooms" that someone introduced to me many years ago. The places in our hearts or minds where we keep thoughts and feelings that we cannot bare to the world as a whole, but where we are free to open up the boxes we keep them in and see what happens. Smith is that place...and in that vein, I clarify my original answer to the question: if a particular someone needed to know what I had to say, they had already been told.

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
The tune is ever-changing.
