I was just looking around and couldn't find a book group here. Whats up with that? I read a good deal of books and thats what has been using up most of my time lately.
I just finished the Hunger games books and read to kill a mocking bird this week also. Lets see what else. The dragon tattoo girl books were good. I have read a few Woodhouse books (I just love Bertie).
Anyhow thats all I've been up to.
I know... boring. lol

me by showing me new ideas and bringing forth different ways to look at
the things around me. It is a path that would be unbearable without the
honest debate of friends.

I would like to share with you a story about making a difference. It is a true story that happened a long time ago in a place that means a lot to me.

Okay so I got a speeding ticket. No big deal right? Well then you don't know me very well. I have to make it a big deal. Because that's what I like to do. Make things a big deal, and I wasn't disappointed with this.
So I have my ticket in hand and call the court. I find out the fine is $170 dollars. "Well I wasn't speeding" I say, "I would like to fight the ticket".

This is the first story I have ever wrote ( and it shows). It was never meant to have an ending but was just a weekly installment to a writing challenge. Almost all the character and plot grew from that challenge. It was meant as a fairy tail noir lol and went together with my icon photo.
So if you like the story the credit is mine, but if not you can blame Syd and the challenge. lol

Are you afraid to die?
Or are you just afraid to live?
Or could it be like most people, that both are somewhat true.

1. "Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works."
2. "Anything that's invented between when you're 15 and 35 is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it."
3. "Anything invented after you're 35 is against the natural order of things."

There are hundreds of paths up the mountain,
all leading in the same direction,
so it doesn't matter which path you take.

telling everyone that his or her path is wrong.
