About this author

Kim Strickland lives in Chicago with her husband and three children, two cats and one dog. She'd post her actual year of birth, but then someone might try to steal her identity, which would only be a good thing if it meant she could go on vacation.

“In the end, Love always triumphs over hate. Always.”

“My first GoodReads quote. It should be something profound.”
Kim Strickland

“Leave the problems of God to God and karma to karma. Today you're here and nothing you do will change that. Today you are alive and here and honored and blessed with good fortune. Look at this suset, it's beautiful, neh? This sunset exists. Tomorrow does not exist. There is only now. Please look. It is so beautiful and it will never happen ever again, never, not this sunset, never in all infinity. Lose yourself in it, make yourself one with nature and do not worry about karma, yours, mine, or that of the village.”
James Clavell
