Thank Amanda & Brian.

Haha, well, of course thank you to them! I'm extremely greatful for the book, and for the music, and for that vine Amanda posted the other day where she gets the shop owner to squeeze all the chickens at once. But, I meant thank you for taking the time to read what I wrote. Thank you for considering it, and for connecting. It means the world. <3

I just finished The Art of Asking. It took one whole day to pour through all the love, just like that, in one big gulp.

I *also* (as others in the thread have wisely done) thank dear Amanda and lovely Brian for all the music (& let's not forget all the other musicians who have backed AFP or The DD or The Grand Theft Orchestra, and etc) for ALL THE THINGS. But especially for the music. Amanda is amazing and truly special. She taught me - both through her book and her unequivocal life - that we are only loved in direct proportion to the amount of love we give. The book *might* have saved my life. It certainly saved my art.

That last sentence means: I am now embarking on a project of my own, to distribute and to share. I am taking the advice of many friends at last ... I am publishing my poetry! I honestly wouldn't have had the stones to ever do such a thing until I read The Art of Asking. Here's to the journey through art she inspires EVERYWHERE and in everyone who really listens! Huzzah for this book! Huzzah for Amanda! Huzzah for the capacity to love within all of us!

No surprise the book hit the top 10 on the NYT bestseller list here. Let's hope the message is contagious! *all the feels*

PS. Sorry for the cheesy corny emotional outbursts in this post, but when one reads a thing like this book, it's REALLY hard not to let some of it spill out.
