I love books. I love movies. I love stories told in ways that grab me. I love ideas I’ve never considered and ideas that give me a shock of recognition and gratitude to the person who has put my thoughts (our thoughts) into just the right words. I love visual imagery that makes my imagination dance. I love uplifting thoughts that make my heart soar and my fears rest. This page will mainly be about books. But sometimes, I may veer off to talk about a movie or a television show or something else that means something to me. Here are some (mostly) books that have touched me. I hope they touch you, too.
