I'm reading tonight a book called "The Hero with a Thousand Faces" by Joesph Campbell. Its about ancient hero myths, touches religion (but not a religious book) and the tells us what the main theme is in most if not all stories ever told and about man's eternal struggle for identity.

These days I am often asked the question "so what are you reading at the moment?". It's a question that often gets asked of me when I get into conversation with people about books, especially when I mention that I see myself as a bit of a writer and that I have a fiction novel in the works. Truth be told, in keeping with my relentless efforts to challenge myself over the last year and a half or so the majority of my reading hasn't all been in the area of fiction. In fact I've been suffering a bit of a mental overload from studying all manner of non-fiction "how to" books. Books about attraction, self improvement and at the moment I'm reading the Psychology of Entertainment by Jennings Bryant.
In this forum I now spend a lot of my time joining and re-joining under different usernames posting emotive subjects it's fun to read all the replies, lol. Sometimes I answer my own posts just add to the spice or to upp my post-count, I find it fun and once you start to get a taste of this different world, one where you can join a group of strangers and they will accept you, be interested about you and genuinely try and help, it can be an amusing game to sucker these people, as usually I can guess what they want, be it attention or security or emotions or just to up the post count, its easy for me to give what they want although I don't mean it, I only do so for my own enjoyment, and in the belief that these postings are an expression of my true character. lol
If you don't understand this simple truism you will find that your model of reality is at the mercy of your circumstances and often dictated by other people, and this really isn't a good thing.

Just finished Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Living To Tell The Tale, moving on to Miguel Ruiz's The Mastery of Love. I usually enjoy Ruiz's stuff but I think he's resting on his laurels here.

Good for him. Since I'm on a latino binge, better I play some Malo... and dance.
