Thirty five things I know at thirty five
Today is my birthday
I woke up so grateful to be alive, in the endless gift of life. I am so happy to turn 35 years old today, it feels like a huge accomplishment to still be sober, breathing, and creating art and writing for myself and the world.
To celebrate I will spend time with the people I love, thrift at my favorite used bookstore, and write to you this list.
The greatest gift I could ask for is if you joined me for The Artist Way Book study starting June 18 by becoming a paid subscriber of this newsletter - every Friday for three months I’ll send you a pep talk email about the chapter and we’ll write out how our week went in the comments of Substack. We meet on zoom during week six (July 30 9AM pst) and week twelve. For now - just get the book! And all the details will be sent on the 16th
You can share this list with a friend, on social media, or write your own

When I buy a book there is no guarantee I will read it
