video: what are you grateful for?

I am lucky in a thousand ways this summer.  And one of them is that I get to help host a Secret Mission for the Dream Lab at Mondo Beyondo. Here’s what it is:  My friends at Mondo Beyondo want to inspire folks to create guerilla goodness in the world–acts of kindness or love that help […]

video: make your own luck

I’ve just made a new trailer for Get Lucky that tries to feel a little bit like the book. I was super-lucky to get to use photos taken by my beautiful pal Andrea Jenkins of Hula Seventy, who is an amazing photographer, artist, blogger, and mama.  Beyond amazing, actually. I’ve been trying to make this video […]

written on the body

I’m not sure how I came up with the idea to do this.  But a few weeks back, I decided that I wanted to paint words all over the body of my friend Jenny and have our friend Karen photograph it.  So I asked them.  And to my serious delight they both said yes. Here’s […]

the lives we hoped for

Here’s a video I just made for the essay “The Lives We Hoped For.”  I originally posted the written version here, under I Love Wrinkles, and then the amazing Mary Swenson posted it to Kirtsy.  Which inspired me to read it at a book event a few days ago.  And reading it out loud to […]
