  1. I am the author of “The Stranger” by Albert Camus: A Critical Introduction.
    You can read extracts on Amazon and Barnes and Noble sites. Please check it out and let me know what you think.

  2. Wow Frank….I never knew all this about you! Looking forward to following you on Facebook. If ever in the Cleveland, SC area, please come visit us! We are very near Caesar’s Head and Table Rock State Parks. Would love to reconnect!

  3. I’ve been wondering if those with what we call Alzheimer’s disease are folks who are simply moving more slowly from this side to the other side. We think they are “sick” but actually they are enjoying being simultaneously in touch with both sides. We have trouble touching the part that is over there at the moment.

  4. Hello dear! I really like the statement about the feather in the header. Indeed, it is this way, and I guess with many other things, too! Have a nice weekend!

  5. Frank Bird, I know that there are more than one college writing instructor that understands and shares Native American knowledge… In light of this, did you teach writing at a college in or near Fort Lauderdale in 1997 and 1998 and share with your creative writing students Native American song? If so, I was in that class. Did you?
