Welcome to My Book Shelf.  On this page and probably also on my blog, I hope to write about some of my favorite writers and teachers, those whose work has deeply moved me and influenced my journey.  Since I am only now setting up my website, I will just begin with a list of a few of those who have had the most influence on my journey.  There are so many more, and since I am still learning and growing, the list will continue to grow.  My long range plan (hope) is that I will be able to write short commentaries about some of them and maybe even have copies of book covers.
