None of the Above

None of the Above

To be, to have, to think, to move — which of these verbs is the one you feel most connected to? Or is there another verb that characterizes you. To be doesn’t fit me very well as it confines me. I have been many things — an EMT, a medical […]

Everyone Keeps Secrets

Everyone Keeps Secrets

You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) – and what questions would you ask? My first impression upon reading the daily prompt today was a person I know who might […]

My Reading Habits

My Reading Habits

When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non-fiction? Do you have an idea why you prefer one over the other?

I read both fiction and non-fiction and usually have several books going at one time. I have a huge list of books to read on Goodreads.com knowing full well that I will not live long enough to read all of them. But I use Goodreads to keep my progress. At the moment, I am half-way finished with Manon Lescaut by Abbe Prevost and Meridian Qigong by Tevia Feng.

Fiction is wonderful to escape into another world and forget my current problems/life. I can tune the world out and enjoy myself. My mother would do all sorts of things to get my attention when I was reading but I was in my own little world. I’m not quite that good in tuning out the world now.

My non-fiction selections are from all disciplines, just whatever I am curious about at the time.

I try to keep up with my reading and technology makes that so easy but I find it a constant struggle to find time. If I don’t read, how can I improve my writing. I have Kindle on my phone so I should be reading when I’m a passenger in the car. Right?

Nothing Stinks

Nothing Stinks

Please don’t ask me to smell the milk to determine if it is any good or any other food for that matter. Of course, you can let one rip quietly and I would not know unless you tell me. I’m not bother by dead skunks, […]
