...The rest of the Story

Among the goodies I received for Christmas, oops Birthday, was Steve Martin's autobiography, Born Standing Up. I've been reading a little bit each day and am 1/2 way through. It is fascinating. I became familiar with him when he emerged in the mid 1970's as a WILD & CRAZY GUY. So far everything I've ready about Steve happened before he hit the big time.

Lessons learned:

1. There are very few overnight successes.

2. Get to know the rest of the story, it will offer insight and enrich your experience.

3. Take time to read more.

4. Own a pair of rabbit ears.


  1. I believe that book was technically a birthday present... one that will be stolen/borrowed as soon as you finish it.

  2. You are Right! And that is why I have read so much of it already!
