I’m thankful for Maya Angelou. Without her integrity, compassion, and poise, I would have been just another pissed off female writer.

I’m grateful that my new book, Teen Spirit Guide to Modern Shamanism, releases worldwide, today.

I’m grateful for the Nature that surrounds and engages my home and family.

I’m happy that my kids care about the world, and all the things on it.

I’m thankful for good food.

I’m grateful for sick funk recovery.
