Robin Priebe: Thanks, Rama Devi, for your comments. Your poem "Road to Here and Now "suggests a love for philosophy. Perhaps a kindred spirit.
The following is not succinct but is a signpost to success in life.
'Never promise more than you can deliver.
Always deliver more than you promise.

Your potential will never get off the ground.

What I have learned during my four years of membership with FanStory is the international commonality of people towards those things that matter. Such as love, family. courage and humor.
I am a great believer in the challenge of change and the opportunity this brings . FanStory members do have the opportunity to influence outcomes by circulating their writing and courteous commentary. Through our love of literature let us reach out to bring love and understanding to our relationship with our fellow man.
One man's take on life told thru humorous short stories from his childhood on into his mid-50's; from feeling like an outcast in school to being an adult. His intent: hope. Hope in that you shall see, no matter how rough life can seem -and is- at times, that you may be able to enjoy it. Each story will bring a laugh, a smile, a tear, a lesson.
