Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
I like to use Blurb to make photo albums so my digital pictures will sit on a bookshelf and be easy to see, instead of lost on a hard drive somewhere. I'll probably do a book for each year, collecting photos of what our family did each year. I'd also like to scan some old traditional photo albums and turn them into nice Blurb books.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
I like the writers Philip K. Dick, J. R. R. Tolkien, Rene Dubos, Loren Eiseley, and of course, Baha'u'llah and Abdu'l-Baha. Friends whose books I recommend include: Mike Brotherton, Leah Cutter, Juan Cole, Sen McGlenn, Annette Van Dyke, Mark Rank, Larry Davis, Arlene Stiffman, Michael Sherraden, and Rosina Neginsky. My favorite artists include Pontus Aratoun, Lesley Cottle, Grant Wood, Thomas Hart Benton, George Caleb Bingham, Wassily Kandinsky, Yves Tanguy, Goya, El Greco, Mark Tobey, Roz Chast
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
