I am a civilian officer on a ship that is currently stationed in Asia. I have traveled throughout Asia and the Middle East aboard many ships and I have traveled all over Europe and the USA in my spare time. While traveling is both a source of work and fun for me my other main hobby is reading. I always have plenty of time and I plow through novels usually faster than I can get them. Well... depending on the work schedule! I hope that in doing this I can spark an interest into someone else that might just need something to change their lives. Reading is what turned my life around in high school. I was introduced to The Hobbit and I am firmly convinced that was what turned me, and my poor grades, around. I have since received two college degrees, both with honors and I now work in the most beautiful office in the world. Everyday I get to look out of my air conditioned office on the bridge of a ship to see the blue sky bright with the first rays of the sun reflecting off clouds and the ocean. I have seen pods of dolphins that have stretched far as the eye could see, sunsets that take your breath away and the truest blue in the ocean that no one could ever explain or duplicate in anyway to do it justice. I have met men and women from all walks of life and from every corner of the earth, and I have been part of things that will have an impact on the lives of people yet unborn. Somethings that I have done have made me proud and others have humbled me, but I would not trade any of the good or bad memories for anything in the world. I hope that the people that come across the books that I will leave behind will find joy, happiness or the inspiration to do or become something that they want or desire. To everyone that is participating in this effort I salute you and wish you to continue for the sake of those who might just become something more than they are.
Books are my treasure, The world is my treasure chest!
