My #FFs

I generally don’t like the #FF thing. It makes for a nice Friday ritual, gears me up for the weekend. But I find it impossible to do an #FF list for myself. I care deeply about and learn from and am surprised by and laugh with so many of you. Everytime I try to do it I leave people out. But I have been feeling a huge upwelling of gratitude today thru my meditations that I’m going to give it my all. If you know you belong her and I’ve forgotten you please don’t take it personally. OK then — here goes.

@MoreVoices–my sister from another (unfortunately also hugely fucked) mother. I am astounded by your ability to manage your system, your willingness to push forward, and your stunning courage. You are one of the funniest people I know. I love you. #FF

@ssanquist–you teach me so much from your very being. I consider your existence in my life to be a huge, huge gift. You stick with me even thru my asshole moments. You right my ship. You listen. Your future clients are going to be very, very lucky people. Love ya #FF

    The FF thing always gets me too: I suddenly realise too late that Friday’s gone and lots of lovelies have ff’ed me without me ff’ing back; add to that, I’m always worried about missing people out. You’re an inspiration, Splinty: reckon I’m gonna hafta make like a copycat…
