About this author

Susie Duncan Sexton grew up in a very small town, Columbia City, Indiana. After graduating twelfth in her class at Ball State University (winning the first ever John R.

description

I love this. Fits my present mood to the max. Oh, yeah...oh, yeah...

CliffsNotes were named for a fellow named CLIFF. Did you know that?

He could speed read textbooks and write down what they were about for his college friends...that is the truth!

However, the lemmings who follow each other off cliffs caught my eye. Sometimes Facebook postings just conjure up the lemming mentality...shame on me.

“As I consider myself nothing nor nobody more than Peter Sellers in Being There or at my liveliest as Inspector Clousseau, it is difficult to make “Susie” sound interesting?”
Susie Duncan Sexton, Secrets of an Old Typewriter: Stories from a Smart and Sassy Small Town Girl

“Oh, you poor, dear, old boy…come here for a pat on the head.” We encountered a very ancient-appearing, dejected Australian Shepherd mix of a dog whose eyes squinted tightly as he faced into the frigid gusts and who shyly skittered the opposite direction as we approached him.”

The Next Best Boo...: This topic has been closed to new comments. Book Cover Hunt -- New Game Alert!! 3108 1973 May 30, 2013 12:46PM  
“We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate for having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein do we err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth.”
Henry Beston, The Outermost House: A Year of Life On The Great Beach of Cape Cod
