    "3000 Classic Books on 1 Flash Drive" This is so cool! Thanks. Grace!

    "Library, Cornell University, New York" Hmm. Nice arrangement for a personal library. The rest of the room contains comfortable reading chairs & sofas, a restored ancient store fireplace, and an alcove with espresso machine & micro-chocolatier's display case. What did I miss?

    Wow! Be careful what you wish for! Still... What are memories? I think some memories hurt because our personal "emotional baggage" colors how we look at it. Without our "interpretation" the memory might be a delight to others. What do you think?

    I have more literary best friends than the original makes & models.

    A book's silent invitation: "See my title, my font, the design of my cover? I am for you".

    My ratio? One cup coffee -> 2 pages rough draft. One cup + 1 oz. dark chocolate -> 3 pgs and/or unexpected plot twist

    "Writers are supposed to have some mystical bond with their pens... as if their pen strokes were what readers ultimately consumed..." The author of the article continues with his awakening to the existence of exotic pens & the sensual pleasure of studying their contours... Oh! Or -writing- with them! ...Bet you can't write just one! :-D

    Suppose I told you that this is what you see when you look down from your bedroom window. Where are you? What is just out of your sight?

    "Cool Story, Bro! Needs More Dragons." ... .... I was writing a a cool story with a negative number of dragons, I gave up when they deleted everything I'd written .. (SnorgTees t-shirt logo)
