    • I'm a bootleg writer. Not a "real" writer. I suppose I'm a good human being, and that's mostly what I ask for from my friends. I detest arrogance, which differs from high self-confidence. I write most from my life experiences, which include many wrong paths, but I also have experienced some heart warming things I write about. I like people who have a little low self-esteem. I know that's odd, but they seem to have a greater feel for life, and are more compassionate. I also value intelligence , people who laugh, and make me laugh, self dignity, and people who have a style of their own.
      I have absolutely no illusions about becoming a writer, for one thing I have a terminal cancer(Pancreatic) or as it's now known, " The Patrick Swayze" cancer...who unfortunately I think will fade away before the end of the year...soooooooooo, no long novels for me. :)
      I love life, and I'm not afraid of dying, I just don't want to be there when it happens. (borrowed)

      I also have this love/hate affair with people. I love them and need them, but some can be a pain.
      I hardly ever get angry, except when I see mass injustice, as what's going on in Darfur, Africa.
      After a quite sordid beginning to this journey, I've found out that friendliness, and kindness trump almost all other human qualities, especially intelligence. I admire people who are not bitter. I love to laugh, and am very self-effacing. I'm not real smart, but have found that accepting that puts me ahead of many who refuse to see their flaws. I guess that's kind of me. I hope we become good friends. Love Rain/Ray

        • It's a Wonderful Life...Titanic...In Search of Bobby Fischer...Back to the Future

        • Tom Waits...Bob Dylan...Johnny Hartman...Neil Young...The Boss(minus his politics) lol

        • 24...The Wire...The Shield...King of Queens...Seinfeld

        • Kenneth Rexroth...Ferlingetti...Kerouc...Jill Scott...Gonzo

        • The guy who jumped into the subway to save a stranger. The countless everyday ordinary person who risks his life trying to help others.

        • Of the many lessons Life has taught...The most profound lessons were not taught when the sun was shining, but when I was standing the middle of the pourin rain..

      Hi, I just wanted to say that I am drawn to your work. I also love your pen name. I am an odd person "I LOVE THE RAIN" I love to watch the rain fall. While others feel depressed and gloomy because of the rainy day, I feel comfort and peace watching it fall. Wierd Huh! Oh well, just wanted to share that thought with you. Have a great day!
