Simon Thanks for looking me up, Melissa.


Penelope Marzec Thanks for your friendship!


Melissa Studdard I'd be happy to add it to my shelf, Jesse. Will you send me a link? I can't seem to find it. I have a book coming out with ATTMP this summer. And, yes, Jen is a sweetie!!!


message 2: by Jesse

Jesse Hanson I very much appreciate being added to your friends list, Melissa. It'a an interesting reading list you have and I see that one of your favorite authors is my friend, Jen Knox.
I hope you won't mind my asking you to consider my spiritual allegory, Song of George: Portrait of an Unlikely Holy Man for your reading list. It's fiction, but it is inspired by my personal life experiences. Best wishes to you. Namaste, jesse


Melissa Studdard Great to meet you too!
