If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Being unwanted for trivial reasons and wanted only for reasons that are just as meaningless.
Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
home, at the library, and at bookstore coffee shops.
In bed I like to read:
books on psychology, philosophy, and the unexplained. I like that there are still some mysteries that don't invove crime.
My favorite story of all time is:
Ray Bradbury's "No Particular Night or Morning," which only served to increase my existential uncertainty when I was young. It's more than six words long, though. Of the six-word memoirs here, my favorites are probably "More beautiful than everyone else thinks." by Carolyn Shivers and "fear has, at times, outweighed faith..." by moonglow. I relate deeply to both of those.
Right now, I'm reading:
"Descartes' Error" by Antonio Damasio, and
"The Highly Sensitive Person" by Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
