Good morning and thanks for being a Shelfari friend. Its an honor to meet you, and I look forward to sharing ideas, comments and suggestions about books and literacy. My work schedule is a little crazy the last few years, but I always manage to skim through a book every day or two - and is the joy in my life, besides my family and overseas friends. Take care and perhaps we can meet when I am speaking in Oceanside on February 20, AT 2 pm.
Happy 2K8 Kathe!
I am announcing to my shelfari friends the release of my new novel, OWEN FIDDLER. If ya got 2-3 minutes, check out the trailor at:

How life at u r end....?
Hi Kathe Gogolewski,
Well thanks for the intrest. Sorry for late, plz dont mine.
Today am feeling little bit pressure free from work and can make some notes on shalfari..
We have got one critical project in retail and manufacturing domain from one of our welknown client in US. There were some problems/bugs which the mumbai team was not able to fix, so wanted my help for the same... though banking is my domain, i did it..
What's up at your end....? Wish you happy weekend....
Thanks for the tip. I'll add 3 cups of Tea to my need to read list, and chat with ya when I've finished it. I'm about 70/30 writing/reading books right now, in a "zone" with two pet novel projects. It all evens out with me, I have lapses in inspirational periods where the percentage switches for more refueling, insight and inspiration. How 'bout you? are an even keel 50/50 gal, or do you go on binges like me?
Yes taht's right :). BTW Next week am leaving to Mumbai(Bombay) for one of our mission critical project, will be there
for atleast 3 weeks, so probably will not get time to check shelfari but you keep in touch.
Hope will get time for writing, besides busy work schedule.

I think what Ying Chang saying is just one side of coin... the other side is that friends care for you, love you, supports in dangerous situation, can give good advice and save ourself ... in many cases friensdhip turns to life partnership(marriage) also. Recently i had this observation, when i got one accident, before my relatives come and saves me, my close friends did it.... admitted in hospital. Ofcourse it wasn't possible for my relatives to reach me in so short time ... since they are far away from me... But the point is that being friends near by in any situation is always good...some time we can share many thoughts with them which we can't with our relatives, i have seen people giving life for friendship... I always try to see the bring and strong side of everything..... well this is a good point for discussion... keep it live.. and make more friends... what do you say ? BTW visited your site ... its nice and will kepp in touch...
Thank you so much for friendship.
