Frank Marcopolos founded "The Whirligig" literary magazine in 1999, which has been called "a landmark, demonstrating the power of the literary underground." It has been said that "you get this true lion-roaring sense that Editor Frank Marcopolos knows what he likes, and how to read, and how to publish, and he has guts, and eats insects on Wheaties with bleach." His long-form fiction has been reviewed with such praise as "thorough-goingly entertaining" and "highly readable...recalls the style of Michael Chabon or John Irving. A literary gem that should not be missed." A broadcasting-school graduate, his unique literary-audio work has been featured in movie trailers, scholastic environments, and on YouTube, with one of his audiobooks achieving over 100,000 "views" there.

    Isn’t that the truth…I choose love. It’s amazing how we are taught to be number one and to defeat others instead of uplifting them…how we are shown to keep things for ourselves when there is plenty of everything to go around. I believe that the whole reason we are here is to help each other realize that we are all one…from the same whole and the struggling we have along the way and how others help us and we help them in return is our purpose….to love. Thanks for the link, the info and in general for getting it. It’s refreshing …

  2. SherryThompson They’re all in the show notes, but here they are again:
    One of the cool things about Kiva is that they research all of the potential recipients to make sure their situation fits with the agreement they have with all the donors. That is, that their country is stable enough to support growing businesses, and that their personal situation is real and not a scam. The other awesome thing is that when the loan gets repaid, it goes into your Kiva account and then you can choose to re-lend it out to another business. So that $25 can really do a ton of good. 
    We really can change the world into an amazingly awesome place if we just choose to focus our attention in the right places. As Bill Hicks says, “It’s only a choice… between fear and love.”

    Can you pop up that link on donating $$ to get business going in financially struggling countries that you mentioned? Love that concept of helping someone help themselves as opposed to a one time gift that will have fleeting results.

  4. SherryThompson It’s amazing how much good a micro-loan can do in the world, as opposed to bombing people. Loans Not Drones!!!

    I like your commentary on humanitarian support vs bombing. I do believe we are all responsible for each other but don’t think another war of this nature ( even assuming all the allegations and assertions are true) is the right move either. I am gals we are taking a pause before action. I am looking forward to the JDS movie and to any forthcoming writings. I am sure that the timing of these writings being leaked along with the movie is by design but that does not make it less exciting…goody goodness.
