    Wow! What can I say? You totally rock. Your choice of books is wonderful (yeah, just because I love most of them too ;-)). You should do more vlogging.

    A suggestion, if I may – how about listing all those books (titles and authors) here? 😀 I was so focused on your voice, your hair, your earrings (my absolute favorite types), your cute cap with your hair peeking out like that – I was too busy enjoying watching you. And now, i want your list of books! Pretty please?

    Wow great job for a first vlog and pretty informative too. Looks like some great reads but other than Bach’s bird offering seems like the female authors own your bookshelves – not a sweaty, grunting knuckle-dragger writer among them.

You are so precious, & I am honored to be mentioned in the same vlog breath as my heroes Anne Lamott and Sylvia Plath. I’ve read JLS at least 7 times 🙂 Stopped counting how often I go back to Bird by Bird… I thank you for the shout-out & I love that you keep doing more, stretching & growing and holding our hands as we walk this journey together.

I have to say, ever since I started reading your blogs on skirt! your “voice” has come thru loud and clear. There is never a question as to your mood or passion for the topic that write about. It is such a treat to HEAR your voice and to see you now! You are beautiful! I just wish your son would have included a bit of your laughter…as I love to laugh along w/ anyone! : )) My request is that you read one of your moving and poetic pieces on a vlog.
