“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
That myth is more potent than history.
That dreams are more powerful than facts. 
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the only cure for grief. 
And I believe that love is stronger than death.”

― Robert Fulghum,  All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Every idea is my last. I feel sure of it. So, I try to do the best with each as it comes and that's where my responsibility ends.
