The Mother

I remember mentioning that I had much to do because my life was half over already and there was so much left.

It made someone very angry when I pointed it out.

That was a while ago. I wish I could remember more details. But I've done some stuff since then, so I guess I was just looking forward. And noticing how much forward I might have left.

So. What exactly do I do for a living?

Required Reading (As I See It)

    Simple. Profound. Striking. All from a man who died at 32. (****)

    The guy's a master. This is my current favorite selection. (****)
  • Harper Lee: To Kill A Mockingbird
    Two words: Atticus. Finch. (****)

    How many times do you get to crawl inside the head of a Roman emperor? (***)

    I read this book before it was "cool". Great investigative reporting regarding one of life's most epic searches for "the truth". (****)
  • Neil Strauss: Motley Crue: the dirt
    Rampant destruction in the name of greed, lust and arrogance. You will feel dirty after reading this book. (***)
  • Don Miguel Ruiz: The Four Agreements
    Live life better. We all need to be reminded how. Some of us need to be shown. (***)
  • Dante: The Inferno
    The classic treatise on the damned. I could think of people who need to re-read this in today's world. (****)
  • David Rensin: All For A Few Perfect Waves
    A series of interviews, from the men and women who paved the first roads of modern surfing, concerning the enigmatic life and times of surfing's legendary genius and consummate asshole Miki Dora. I'm still not sure what to make of Da Cat. (***)
