A year’s sleep.

This is pretty much how I feel about 2011.

I mean, it was an unbelievable year. My first two plays premiered to sold-out audiences. I finished a third play, my first commission. I finished my first novel. I completed two successful residencies. I left a horrible day job and started my own business. I moved into a huge new apartment with a writing studio. I went to D.C. to meet playwrights. I went to New York to meet more playwrights. I helped take care of my Dad during a terrible health scare. I broke my sugar habit. I learned how to cook masoor dal. I saved enough money to go abroad again, this time to Belize and Costa Rica. I fly out next week.

All good things.

But tonight I am oh so very tired.

    I’ll bet you’ll get all caught up on rest and relaxation in Costa Rica. One day on a sunny beach is worth 30 regular ones, I think!

    P.S. Does that photo show you sleeping on a mound of fuzzy bathmats?

  5. Thank you, all.

    And Crystal: they’re a special kind of pillow called Polar Bear from Bed, Bath & Beyond–I love them so. I bought seven of them.
