I just finished "Earthborn" by Orson Scott Card.

I love him as an author, so when I saw this at a used bookstore I grabbed it, and it's Book 5 / last book of the Homecoming series.

So it was interesting to jump in at the end, but it's a very complex story with a lot of really interesting philisophical ideas besides being a great read, a great story.

Crazy Horse by Mari Sandoz. Worth reading. Very good book. Was and still may be required reading in some collage courses.

I have lost 6 pounds. Though I am not trying as hard as I feel I should I am very happy about the weight loss. Good luck to all of you.

It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.

My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.

Just finished "The Principle of the Path" by Andy Stanley. Great book. I tend to do the same things over and over expecting differenct results, which is the classic definition of insanity. Now I see it's all about the paths we chose. So simple, yet profound.
