Today at dinner my aunt thanked all of us because her children could call us family, and that nothing is more important than family. Maybe it’s because I have such a great family (no arguing, no dry turkey), but this fits with my feelings every Thanksgiving (not the part about her children, but they are super adorable kids to call cousins). Even my family in MN was on Skype with me in the kitchen for about 4 hours. You are the people who keep grounded and smiling.

Our Mission"We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it's our job to invent something better."—Chuck Palahniuk (Choke)
Your LifeYour life is your life. Don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission. Be on the watch, there are ways out. There is a light somewhere. It may not be much light, but it beats the darkness. Be on the watch. The gods will offer you chances--know them, take them. You can’t beat death, but you can beat death in life sometimes, and the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be. Your life is your life. Know it while you have it. You are marvelous. The gods wait to delight in you. --Charles Bukowski
- "If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we are not really living. Growth demands a temporary surrender of security." --Gail Sheehy
