Chubby Check Ins and Otter Utterings

Dear Beloved Blog Readers,

I am delighted to report that a fun morning of chatting at Burlington’s Chubby Muffin took place between me and my supporting film star Paul Schnabel.

Oh it was fun and covered the map with topics. He’s really interested in who might be the next person interviewed and the idea of Bernie Sanders came up. Wonder what the best ways to reach him and entice him are?

Please email your thoughts.

Oh, Paul so much praised my ability to share moments when I am feeling low. I want to praise Brene Brown for her daring research on how to live a wholehearted life. (The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are)

I am learning to promote my perfectness because my whole life had been labeled imperfect. I am still hugely imperfect but let’s all share that proudly.

I so want to share with you a toast I just wrote and asked Emily to recite tonight before dinner. It’s for a really good friend who is going through a big transition. I want you to send good thoughts out to her and your own tender hearts as you read it.

My Otter Uttering Toast for Tonight’s Gathering

As forward we go through pain and unknowing we gain so much new stuff on which to build our fantastic futures.

You are with two warriors of that and in a house that flushes old wounds and sews up hearts.

You must know that we are constantly leaving and entering.

Honoring this fact is our lives work.



An Utterer for All Occasions
