By Michael Delara
I invited one of my oldest school friends to come through and discuss his three favorite movies. I met Ali when I transferred to a new high school and I quickly discovered one of the first people I ever met who was actually happy (it was the 90's. it wasn't cool to be happy, yet). I hope you enjoy our conversation, as it truly reveals insights into why my amazing friend is... well, pretty amazing. :-) -------------------------------------- From the Holistic Life Foundation website: Ali Smith is one of the Co-founders of the Holistic Life Foundation.
