Books Music Cool Companies/People

I learned to read at 4, when my older brother, Mike (5+), was on Dad’s other knee and I became a voracious reader . I used books to escape from the noisy confusion of a house filled with people. Once I opened a book, I was able to tune out everything else, much to the chagrin of my sister or Mom who would be calling me to set the table or wash the dishes.

I still use great fiction to escape from the world for awhile; sometimes you just have to give your mind a rest. But I find my first choice for the past few years has been inspiring non-fiction . I think books can be pathways to the soul. To read more about the non-fiction books which have had a significant impact on me and which I highly recommend, click here.

I can’t remember a time when music was not in my life. I grew up in a family of singers and storytellers. On my Dad’s side, he, his 2 brothers and 2 sisters all inherited great voices and a love of music from their father - a vaudevillian. On any typical day, you were liable to find a couple of them singing somewhere - either a capella at our kitchen table, out in the backyard or around the piano at my uncle’s house next door. And, I was right there with them. I love to sing.

To me, music has the ability to move us unlike anything else. Click here to find a list of a few favorites that I would recommend wholeheartedly for inspiration or just plain fun.
