Reporting From Glendale, California.
Well, it's not over yet, but I think now is as good a time as any to say thanks to the people without whom my participation in this event would not have been possible. It helps keep my mind off the thought of strangling someone to compensate for my sleep deprivation.
Thanks to the Blogathon people for setting up this event, and thanks to Bread for the Journey for being the perfect charity to give to.
Thanks to everyone who read this blog today. Having your time and attention has been really encouraging.
Thanks to the people who left comments, reminding me that I haven't been blogging in a vacuum.
And thanks to everybody who was able to sponsor me in my efforts to raise money for Bread for the Journey.
I came across this Bread for the Journey because it was founded by Wayne Muller, whose books I cherish. Legacy of the Heart: The Spiritual Advantages of a Painful Childhood opened me up to new ideas, and How, Then, Shall We Live?: Four Simple Questions That Reveal the Beauty and Meaning of Our Lives is one of the best, most enlightening, and most elegantly written books I have ever read. Muller's writing shows true artistry and beauty, a rarity for these types of books.
