Crying or welling up is something I just can't do for the sake of others.
You sound too perfect.

I am generally a very upbeat, jovial human being, but I'm certainly not opposed to showing sadness. It's part of being alive. The same goes for telling someone off if they really hurt you. It takes a whole lot to get me to that stage of anger, but I always allow it to be an option.

You can make time if you want to. I always read during HS, and this was with me having a job, playing sports, etc....I just had no internet addiction, so there was time.....this is not a judgement, just an observation: We make time for the things we really want to do. If you wanted to do more reading, you would.

I think I've posted this before, but Moonlight Graham is one of my heroes. My wife teases me all the time by telling people that I want to be just like him. I can't argue though, she's right.

Guy pursues his baseball dreams, then becomes a beloved small town doctor, making house calls, staying loyal to his wife? Good man.

This is true. I really don't have a desire to read much at this point.

Reading's a bit too reclusive for me. I am obsessed with interaction. Really the only personal thing I do is write songs. That's it.

I think down the road reading will appeal to me more than it does now.

reading can be social fi you talk about the books. my parents read the same books all the time, and buy each other books for holidays/birthdays that they want to read themselves. i want that some day.

Please don't write songs if you're not a reader. There are only so many times I can stand to hear phrases like "The soft petals of night..."

Oh, and for the record, I do cry while listening to music sometimes. Quite a bit, actually. It's more conducive to triggering emotions in me for whatever reason. Not so much books or fine art. Sometimes movies, but rarely.

No kidding. My wife's taste in books is the suck, but I'm working on her.

When I say I'm not a reader ... I'm not a novel person. I read biographies more than I read novels. I read the paper daily, etc. I don't read novels, I read shorter things.

My songwriting doesn't involve too much imagery, don't worry.
