The "Comment" section used to be call "What Matters". Does that matter? Well either way I will try to write about some core values but expand with more comments. Thanks for coming to this blog.
The University of Pittsburgh has published findings that show as many as 1 in 5 people say they are depressed when they go to social media sites. I think they are right but wonder if that number is high enough. I also wonder if you could have 5 people eat an apple and get a couple who would say they are depressed? If social media makes you depressed then "stop it". If eating an apple makes you depressed then go to a doctor and ask for help.
Don't feel bad for me. I am going to post on some social media when I finish this but I will be fine. Twitter and Pinterest seem to bring a few visitors to this site. Thanks by the way if your one of them. Come back again.
This blog (not counted as social media) is mostly about reading, books, authors, writing, and poetry.
To be a good writer you have to read more than you write. We learn more about writing from reading than any other way. I do like what reading does for our lives. I love the feeling of closeness and understanding that come in following a good author or finding a new one.
Stephen King is an author that has much to say and teach and I have followed him for years. The authors of the last two reviews were new ones for me and opened up a lot of things to think about.
I have over a lot of years read a lot by the author Harold Bloom and have always been fascinated with him. (I'm still fascinated) with his understanding of so many literary figures. I think of him now and remember one of his very good books,
"How to Read and Why"
This book answers its own question. Why?
Because it matters!
Reading matters and I want to find more things to read and to write.
I read a lot of reviews and have reviewed a lot of books on request. I like to see what others have found and compare it to what I have found.
Something else. I will publish in the review section each Friday and about the same in this section.
More Thoughts. Did you hear about the man with a wooden leg named Frank? No, by golly, I didn't, what was the name of his other leg?
