Facebook and the internet have allowed me to observe some of my favorite authors outside of their work. I find it amazing that they come from a wide spectrum of politics and passion from right wing conservatives to liberal PFLAG mamas, Christian, Pagan, and Jewish. I’m not sure but there may even be a Muslim in there. The point is they all have passion. They believe in something. What I find really amazing is that only rarely does their real life philosophy enter their work. There are the exceptions of course but it is still fun to watch.
