The Season To Be Thankful

November 14, 2012

Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow. I'm heading down south for holiday and birthday (my sister's 40th!!) celebrations on early Saturday morning. We're also gearing up to move, we're announcing the plays for 31 Plays in 31 Days, I'm also in the middle of a ton of research for my next project (reading for fun and reading for research are very different (research reading is slooooooow)), and a hundred other things. What I'm saying is that I will not be posting every day, I know this to be true. But since this is the season of remembering what we're thankful for, I wanted to take a moment and be thankful…

This is going to be super cheese ball… You've been warned.

  1. Mi familia. Both near and far, I have some super supportive people on my team. I've gone through a lot of changes this year, and I've needed help so that I could write more. Thank you for stepping up and giving me a hand.

  2. Mi amigos. Again, you guys are all over, you've been there to read plays, or essays I need an extra pair of eyes on… Helping me with 31 Plays in 31 Days…. Seeing shows with me… And seeing my shows too! Some of you folks I've known for most of my life, some I've just met… Regardless, it means a lot to me and I am glad to have so many wonderful people in my life.

  3. Writing. Cheesy, I know. But I am very thankful for writing, and that starting to write woke me up and reminded me that there's more than watching tv. There's a whole life out there waiting, and I'm glad I started partaking again.

  4. The Bay! I really love living in the east bay. I love Oakland, I love San Francisco, and I love Berkeley (where we're moving back to). I'm inspired by your people and your scenery daily.

I could go on and on and on all day. I enjoy my life immensely. I think I covered the big ones though. What are you thankful for?
