I’m grateful for just shy of 22 years with my cat, Zu Zu’s Petals, who died last week.

I’m thankful for the support of my wonderful lover, Rob, and our very sweet children.

I’m grateful for the lovely cover art released last week for my next book, as well as its release date!

I’m grateful for date night.

I’m happy to have understanding friends and loved ones.

I’m thankful for longevity, and the ability to think anew.
