Message in a bottle – November 2014: This is 40


Note to self: A peek into Time Travel 101

(November 2014: This is 40)

Dear Self,

50 is going to be grand

(Background: cacophony of champagne corks popping: a dazzling confetti drop: the sound of a chorus of angels singing Hallelujah from above)

Hang in there, the next 10 years will be the most exciting, exhilarating, rewarding, decade of your life.

The trip to Lourdes will work! You going to be able to throw that wheelchair away – ballroom dancing is in your future.

The twins – will get accepted to Columbia – full scholarships- and will graduate on time – with honors and both get jobs: one will work with Robert Reich in Berkeley and the other with Nicholas Kristof.

Your favorite eccentric aunt in Texas left you “a few cool mill.”

Don’t sweat the small stuff. There is no small stuff.

Let the good times roll.

Oh yeah, that book deal?  Knopf called – They want you to write three more  books… they love your voice –  and did the whole Nora Ephron,  Molly Ivins  comparison!

Yes! You will be on the New York Times bestseller list yet, again!


“Do the thing you fear most and the death of fear is certain.” – Mark Twain
