Super Romance author Rogenna Brewer was telling me about the concept of Theme Song for your life.
Theme song? Very interesting.
So if you were a television show, or a movie and they were running the credits, what would the theme song to your life be?
Let's take it a step further and take it outside and away from your spiritual life. The commercial music theme song for your life.
Rogenna's is Venus by Bananarama.
Mine is definitely, The Tide is High by Atomic Kitten.
Obviously it doesn't have to make sense to anyone but yourself. It is your your life.
So what is your theme song?

From The New York Observer:
The New Thing: Books Without Jackets
"September will see the publication of three unusual-looking books: Farrar, Straus and Giroux's No Impact Man by Colin Beavan, Viking's Bicycle Diaries by former Talking Head David Byrne, and Graywolf's The Adderall Diaries by Stephen Elliott. What makes these books so unusual-looking is that, even though they're hardcovers, their cover art is not printed on dust jackets but instead stamped directly onto the boards that hug their pages."
