My Smudge. Thirteen and still my baby boy.

As I read, write, blog, tweet or knit, he sits by my side.

Today, I'm reading, Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein. The man from Mars (Michael Smith) is truly a masterpiece for all to read who love science-fiction.

Smith is an intelligent creature with the ancestry of a man, but he is more Martian than man. Until we came along he had never laid eyes on a man. He thinks like a Marian, and feels like a Martian. He's been brought up by a race which has nothing in common with us. They don't even have sex. He's a man by ancestry. A Martian by environment.

Have a great day!
