I have suffered from Fibromyalgia all my life. The last few years have been the worst. After talking with many people who are just like me, I realized how great it felt to know I wasn't alone. I also realized that if it helped me to talk to them, then maybe it whould help others as well. So I wrote this book to help others know they are not alone. The World does care.

To describe life's wonderful imperfection, I wrote this book as if I'm just writing a simple and ordinary letter using a pen and paper. I imagine writing without any spell check or grammar check on. I wrote the book A World With You And Me because my dream is to be a part of a ministry. My goal is to write letters most especially for those people who didn't know how to express their thoughts in a hope that I will be able to help them say what they need to say like how some people encourage me to express myself. I wrote the letters using my simple writing style. Just imagine that my book is a huge mailbox with a lot of letters in it. I used the concept of writing letters because I believe that simple words of encouragement is a way to touch everyone's hearts. Writing this book is like a long journey. I shared everything that I've learned from this life since I was young until I became an adult. I wrote everything that I learned from the news, on tv, on the radio, in school, while traveling and everything that I've learn from my family, friends, from my influences, from different artist and even from strangers. In my letters to God, I talked to him about what happened to the world, when the problems of the world started, and the reasons why the world is always giving him the blame whenever bad things happen in their lives. In my letters to the world, I wrote letters for all of you and believe it or not?? Even for myself. I propose a happy change. It is composed of my little suggestion or solution to the problems of the world and my ideas to create change. I wrote a letter to parents, fishermen, illegal loggers, abled and disabled people, drivers, doctors, lawyers, young adults, broken and happy families, lovers, friends, and all people who are seeking an inspiration and reason for living. In the conclusion of the book, I wrote an advance thank-you letter to God and imagined that the world heard me out and granted my proposed happy change. I also wrote this book for people who are a part of a ministry, teachers, writers, artist and all those people who might grant my request to reach out to many people and start a project like what is written in the book. I wrote simple suggestions like for writers, writing a beautiful story on how to solve a math problem for those students who are having a hard time in school. For musicians, asking them to write more songs to make relationships work instead of breaking up. I also wrote a letter asking people to make a car for visually impaired people like me and a lot more! The book is a piece of enlightenment so the reader is not only drawn into the purpose why it was written but to the idea of considering making a happy change to their own lives.

The ?'s 4 Us is a collection of poetry that I hope will cause us to question what is going on in our world. Everything from world events to emotional issues are covered. It's a mixture of seriousness and lightheartedness that comes from various experiences. It's not for the faint of heart and language sensitive. Ok so a few F-Bombs are dropped in it but, the language used... comes from the raw emotions that were felt during the writing. It's poetry, it's not perfect, but if you end up wondering, questioning and/or criticizing, then the book has done its job!

These poems travel from the center of el corazon to fellow humans experiencing war and danger, the planet, and places of joy and beauty. As a whole, they tell a spiritual trajectory.

Give it up already! states a concerned friend about my fret over the decreasing Jewish numbers. I cannot, considering the longest-running hatred toward the Jewlet alone the general challenges of poverty, weather, and family and national associations, or even when the Jew is doing well. We Jews need to take a deep breath to see what we have and what we stand to lose. There is no alternative. After all, as Detective Riback of Las Vegas says so affectionately, You have the right to remain Jewish. Thus my eponymous Snapshots of Judy-ism, an encapsulation of Jewish historical and recent affairs through personal anecdotes, compresses characters and polemics for the non-Jew who may be curious about a few Jewish subjects, the Jew about to jump into another religious system, the intermarried Jew, or the Jew considering intermarrying.
