She is a practitioner of Zen Buddhism which influences her manner of appreciating everything in her life from her friends, family and acquaintances, to the taste of hot chocolate, the vastness of the sky and the energy you gain as you keep your pencil moving and write with truth and details. She provides many gentle suggestions for exercises meant to expand a writer's understanding of the vast possibilities writing can elucidate. Her tone is generous, humorous, nonthreatening, nonjudgmental, encouraging and down to earth. She shares a writer's moments of exquisite pleasure as new heights of self expression are reached and as the moments of self doubt, fear and frustration are borne. Most of all she welcomes anyone with the will to take time, on a regular basis, to write to proudly call themselves writers believing that as each person adopts the title of writer and writes with persistence and concentration through the rapture and pain of truth as they perceive it, they become practicing writers of worth.

Chang was a Red Guard briefly at the age of fourteen, then worked as a peasant, a "barefoot doctor," a steelworker, and an electrician.

Wild Tales: A Rock & Roll Life

by Graham Nash

This ebook includes 4 videos, 34 audio clips, and 11 additional photos from Graham Nash's personal collection. Audio and video content does not play on all reading devices. Check your user manual for details.From Graham Nash--the legendary musician and founding member of the iconic bands Crosby, Stills & Nash and The Hollies--comes a candid and riveting autobiography that belongs on the reading list of every classic rock fan. Graham Nash's songs defined a generation and helped shape the history of rock and roll--he's written over 200 songs, including such classic hits as "Carrie Anne," "On A Carousel," "Simple Man," "Our House," "Marrakesh Express," and "Teach Your Children." From the opening salvos of the British Rock Revolution to the last shudders of Woodstock, he has rocked and rolled wherever music mattered. Now Graham is ready to tell his story: his lower-class childhood in post-war England, his early days in the British Invasion group The Hollies; becoming the lover and muse of Joni Mitchell during the halcyon years, when both produced their most introspective and important work; meeting Stephen Stills and David Crosby and reaching superstardom with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; and his enduring career as a solo musician and political activist. Nash has valuable insights into a world and time many think they know from the outside but few have experienced at its epicenter, and equally wonderful anecdotes about the people around him: the Beatles, the Stones, Hendrix, Cass Elliot, Dylan, and other rock luminaries. From London to Laurel Canyon and beyond, Wild Tales is a revealing look back at an extraordinary life--with all the highs and the lows; the love, the sex, and the jealousy; the politics; the drugs; the insanity--and the sanity--of a magical era of music.
