thanks

Yesterday art therapy involved dance and other body movement / facial expression stuff where people were looking at me, and it was really hard.  I’m eagerly anticipating March.  We have a lot going on in March.  But I want to honor this last day of February.  Thanks, February.

I finished reading Calling Dr Laura, a graphic memoir.  I loved it.  Anyone who likes graphic memoirs should read this book.  The drawings are beautiful, and the speaker is so likable.  It’s about someone who goes to a psychic and gets told that her dad, who she had been told all her life was dead, […]
