Happy Thanksgiving


When I was in fourth grade, I played a little girl named Thankful in our class play. I'll play her today, too. Gratitude makes a big difference. And sometimes you must, must, must practice it in all the ways you know how before your heart gets so heavy you begin to sink. Life is so full of wonder. And its fleetingness makes it precious. I am grateful to be awake, to laugh, to be aware, to enjoy deliciously rich brownies, the warmth of squash-pear soup, the gunmetal delerium of jasmine tea, the tangy snap of pomegranate seeds, the laughter among friends and family, the sweet warmth of another breathing animal at your side, that above all else, and in spite of everything else, and perhaps because of all the pain folded in, means nothing else but LOVE.

You Know What I'm Not a Fan Of?

And I Know I'm Totally Alone on This:

1.) Insomnia.

2.) Insurance Companies.

3.) Bouncing Checks.

4.) Filling Out Claim Forms.

5.) Inept Pharmacy Technicians.

6.) Doctors who TELL THE PHARMACIST TO CALL YOU TO CALL THEIR CLOSED OFFICE.

7.) Pharmacy techs who don't call you.

8.) The Above Elements Combined (minus work and the bounced checks, those are just peripherally involved...in fact, I love work, because it gives me the insurance that lets me subsistively pay for my insomnia-busting medication and others that normally keep me from being bat-shit crazy...nevermind).

9.) Insomnia.

10.) Insomnia.

11.) Angelina Jolie (she's a hussy who thinks she's saving the world because she adopts a bunch of bebehs).

12.) Being crazy.
