What do you credit it to when you find an mind altering, alchemal force hidden within something as innocuous as a Myth book. Is it a credit to Robert Asprin (Bobby Bufferin), the author of this charmingly humorous series, to have a character tale that affects the reader so, or perhaps it's a signal to my preceptiveness, to reach out and grab the magick that is out there? Or, even more likely, a sign of my desperation to change my status?

So it is with a strange sensation that I set down the seventh book in the Myth series- my third in two days. I was flipping through looking for a specific quote, but this one kinda leapt out at me... "I've felt scared and alone since I hit this dimension... or would have if you hadn't been along. I'm so screaming afraid of making a mistake that I'd probably freeze up and do nothing unless I had somebody in tow to applaud when I did ight and to carp at me wheen I did wrong... just so I'd know the difference. That's how insecure I am... I don't even trust my own judgment as to wheter I'm right or not in what I do."

Not quite how I feel, but an apt voicing of some of my concerns in the way I interact with people...

"Forget trying to be strong. Your real strength is in being a warm, caring person. When you try to be strong, it comes across as being cold and insensitive."

This one kinda scared me in it's reflection in many things I've said... go Bobby Buffeirn...

"The phrase 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life' was almost a cliche across the dimensions. It occured to me tahta a better phrasing would be 'Your whole life to date has been training for right now!' The question wasn't what I had or didn't have so much as what I was going to do with it."
