OUR Kismet: The B.o.O.K.

Does the world need another acronym?  Well maybe just one.  At some point you’re likely to realize that you’ve lived your own   Book of Kismet.  Or maybe it’s a Book of Penelope, Fred, Fatima, or Wolfgang.  If you’re inspired to write– and hopefully share– your stories, feel free to use the A-Z themes you find here.  Or you may discover your own.  

The Soul has been given its own ears to hear things               the mind does not understand.
