So I want a story, wit, music, wryness, color, and a sense of reality
in what I read, and I try to get it in what I write.

John D. MacDonald

Here’s to the wonder of joyous discovery.

A good book, one that resonates. One we can’t bear to see end.

This is why we write, friends. To capture for others the kinds of stories we love.

Read. Let your favorite books be your mentors.

  1. There is no Frigate like a Book (1286)
    BY EMILY DICKINSON
    There is no Frigate like a Book
    To take us Lands away
    Nor any Coursers like a Page
    Of prancing Poetry –
    This Traverse may the poorest take
    Without oppress of Toll –
    How frugal is the Chariot
    That bears the Human Soul –
