  • I never saw a purple cow. I never hope to see one. But I can tell you anyhow, I'd rather see than be one.

    That poem by Frank G. Burgess might be the first one I ever learned, and I got a lot of enjoyment out of it. At least until I turned 8 or so. I don't think of myself as much interested in poetry, and certainly don't write any. (Well, except for when I write new words for familiar tunes and drive...

  • "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer

    Okay; I admit it. I have never liked vampires. From a very young age, I have been really very scared of them. So when the Twilight books came out, I was reluctant to take them on.
