Thanks,Ron.I read alot,so I will put this one on my list!And I'd like to recommend "Swallow the Ocean" Its a memoir: "It was 1975, and nine-year-old Flynn was sitting with her mother on the floor of their San Francisco apartment with a pile of money as her mother explained that the "faces of these men on the coins and bills in front of us... had impact on people and events." Flynn's father had moved out a year earlier; her two sisters were at school, where she, too, should have been; instead, her mother needed to talk with her about all those faces on the money. This is how Flynn, a writing instructor at the University of Minnesota, begins her elegantly written story of how her mother had been an adventurous bohemian in the 1950s and '60s, before she became unhinged by what was later diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia."
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. Anias Nin
