Outside The Lines,
A literary Column
By Marcia Diane
Year’s End; seriously hard to imagine where it went so fast and now having to invent time travel and write to you all for tomorrow. Your celebrations over I will add one last encouragement to all of us in the New Year 2016…
Read all the poets, all the prose artist, all the journalist you can get your hands on…best ever antidote to many human ills; from a sluggish mind, to despair to flat out ill informed…read folks and so this list I will lend…as starters.
You can find any of these folks on line…just google them. Their books and articles can be bought in hard copy or electronic from many vendors…
Martin Cruz Smith
John Le Carré
