What a great list, well-balanced between the fun and the seriously good aspects of your life.

I was prompted by a friend to write a blog post on Monday for my "Thankful Four" and could only pick four items. What I came up with: my family, health, education, and imperfection. The last one took me the longest, but I realized that the imperfections I struggle with in myself and in the world have made me a better and surprisingly happier person.

I, too, am grateful for terrific, enlightening blogs - like yours! Thank you.

I'm grateful for so many things including your blog! You really are inspiring! Happy thanksgiving.

I'm grateful for the internet! because I adore the internet and need and enjoy it above all reason (this also answers a question you posed several posts ago). However, I am even more grateful for health, family, friends, job, disposable income, income to begin with! southern california weather, my house and car and career, the ability to enjoy delicious food, (now we're getting into in-no-particular-order territory), great movies and TV, the reasonably functional perspective I am usually able to maintain, and my extraordinary extended group/support system of friends/colleagues/childcare providers who make it all possible and worthwhile... I've probably left some things out, but those are a start. happy thanksgiving and thanks for your wonderful blog, love m.

My Books (with Elizabeth Craft)

  • 'Bass Ackwards and Belly Up' and 'Footfree and Fancyloose' tell the story of four best friends who commit the ultimate suburban sin: putting off college to pursue their dreams.

    Publisher's Weekly said: "Full of romance and adventure, laughter and tears, the story is a reminder that veering from the straight and narrow road doesn't always lead to a dead end."

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
