Goodbye 2011

Here's a random, and for sure not exhaustive, list for 2011 of what made me laugh or cry or gasp, what made me proud, or feel all warm and happy, or really really sweaty, or loved or filled with envy or longing: All the Living, by CE Morgan, The Outlanderby Gil Adamson,  The Sisters Brothers, by Patrick deWitt, The Reservoir, by John Milleken Thompson.

Breaking Bad, Boss, Modern Family, Homeland, Enlightened.

Mary Marcy May Marlene, Buck, Bridesmaids, Win Win, The Red Riding Trilogy, Shelf Life.

Fresh Air, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.

Hedgebrook, Hot Yoga, London, a visit from the Swiss, babies, finding the crack near Boulder Utah (not crack, a crack), Manzanita, San Pancho.

Saying goodbye to Jennifer.

My friends, family, the continual delightful surprise of my mother.

Bill (huh...I looked at the opening paragraph of this post and realized he makes me feel all those things).
