One thought on “Dr. John says, “Have a little talk with yourself.”

  1. Great jumpstarters, John. Very insightful. In the event of a lottery win, i would definitely continue writing. The best things I wrote so far were a press release titled Art is Vital and a freestyle personification poem which gave a pineapple the voice of Eartha Kitt.
