“A Cruel Coincidence” Wins Silver Award at New York Festivals 2012 World’s Best Radio Programs
Check out this new blog!
sweet mounds of purple
summer aching to burst upon
tempted tongues willing to cozy up
to muffin batter in a 400 degree
oven or cram a piecrust jam jar
freezer bag tagged “home-grown berries”
pleasantly plump a little seedy looking
for nimble fingers not afraid to get stained or
pained by a few pricks if you’ve got the
digits we’ve got the delectables so reply
to “neglectables” aka the blackberry
bush in affluent alley but don’t
dilly dally because while the
rich go produce shopping
the ripe go rot rot

Congratulations to Steph from Toronto! She wins the Make David Sedaris Happy! Contest and the two fabulous prizes: a signed copy of my book and the renaming of my breast prosthesis to Steph (originally called Dolores) . Not only did Steph Fed Ex me his new book — Let’s Explore Diabetes With Owls — she had him autograph it for especially for me. She says, “David Sedaris was very sweet and spent time chatting with each person as he signed their book(s). When I finally got my chance to meet him, I gave him Most Of Me. He asked about you and your memoir. Then, after reading Ms. Mastectomy’s blurb — “One Nipple Up!” — he wrote, “I look forward to reading your book.” Me too! Thanks Steph!!

In 2010, the U.S. Senate designated April as Parkinson’s Awareness Month. Since then, Parkinson’s communities around the globe have boosted their year-round PD awareness campaigns every April. Considering approximately 6.3 million people worldwide have this affliction, public education is important. It promotes understanding, compassion, community, research, treatments, philanthropy and hope. And for this, I am grateful. But as someone who has Parkinson’s disease and must cope with the myriad symptoms – every second of every minute of every day of every month – I would welcome a designated month, or even one designated day of escape from PD. And I’d call it a Parkinson’s Holiday.
