I love MEl Brooks, Walt Whitman, and Oprah. I love Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, LEaves of Grass, Spaceballs, the Power of Now. I love flowers and cacti and bicycling through orange groves at night in Tucson with the stars twinkling over me while I glide by in wonder at and amazement at the beauty of this world. i love that I have had lovers who have been brilliant musicians, Olympic athletes, and gentle buddhists. I love the world, I love who I love, I love that I have lived in scary places and exquisite places and plain places and still have a sense of humor about it all. I love that I am alive.
