I’ve figured out my life plan.
I’m going to get really, really rich. Like, multimillionaire rich. I don’t know how yet. That part I’ll figure out someday, but once I get there I know exactly what I’m going to do!
I’m going to get an RV and turn it into a bookmobile and take someone who can drive it to be my assistant librarian (preferably the SO but if he can’t drive it I guess we’ll have to get somebody else to).
And I’ll stock it with lots and lots of books - classics in fiction and non, the recent bestsellers, lots of Harry Potter, cookbooks, educational materials, Calvin & Hobbes collections, YA novels, steamy romances, paperback mysteries, obscure books from my English classes, the TIME top 100 of the century, and more as I can think of it.
I’ll drive across the U.S. (and Canada?) giving out books in exchange for anything - a hug, a meal, a penny, anything! - and collect books with a nifty hatch built into the RV as a bookdrop.
I’ll recommend my favorites, discover new reads, and donate the excess to rural libraries and schools along the way.
And at night we can camp out and have cool stories to tell with the locals, or we’ll snuggle in under the stars.
It’s going to be so much fun. I can’t wait.
I’m half kidding about this plan, and half serious, by the way.

Have you ever noticed how beautiful can be the Coffee? I was wondering about the basic rules of Nature. Our common sight of the World. I’ve created something that is different than what you’ve seen so far. This is my Coffee Universe.

My charity:water fundraiser money from last year’s birthday is in Rwanda! Not only is it going to help up the percentage of the population with access to clean water, it’s also helping the local economy :)
Doing good makes me feel warm fuzzies.
Help me raise more money for this awesome charity for my 21st birthday this year!

The Portrait of a Lifetime
Helping a friend and veteran leave a legacy
Bruce Roscoe, CPP, orchestrated a portrait session of his best friend, Joe Rowe, that he’ll remember for ages. As a photographer who served in the Vietnam War, taught workshops all over the United States and has been named as one of the top photographers in Arizona, Roscoe has had his share of photographic experiences. But this was the only shoot that he could give credit to fate for making it happen. “It could only have been divine intervention to have everything work out the way that it did,” Roscoe said. “It was that incredible.”
My first feature :) A pretty good read, if I do say so myself!

There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed
