*Eternal surfing of the web is what I do but the many, many links in each chapter are from the extremely generous folks around the world wide web who post videos, articles and all kinds of content that you might find delightful of damning…
Note: the posts/chapters can be read as is, but they’re far more fun when you click on the links scattered throughout…
I want to thank my sister who nonchalantly told me to write a book online because “everybody’s doing it.”
And then there’s the fabulous trio in CareSupport at the San Francisco Health Plan; I’m not sure I can name names but their initials are OCD. I am sooo not making this up so Ona, Courtney and Dianne: you can tell me to cease and desist at any time but thank you also for encouraging me down this journey (or was it the mimosa that’s making me think you were cheering me on…).
I guess I have to hand it to my spouse for humoring me and battening down the hatches every time the tsunamis of life crashed in again and again and again.
Last but not least, the one person who knows exactly which buttons to push and by golly will damn well push them all at the same time to get maximum effect but who is also the one person in the whole world I would fight tooth and nail and to the death for, Mom, you have my thanks for so many things for so many lifetimes over (of Sisyphean proportions) even if you’re not always that supportive (here we go)… I better stop before I go off on a rollercoaster of tangents that can only be inspired by the one person most people will only see as a sweet little ole lady…
