it’s here! Publication Date: #howtostaysaneinacrazyworld

oh, darlings

we cannot stop smiling.

14a06aa898ab11e39b8f0ebc2702080c_8we smiled up at the sky while taking a small constitutional around the quiet early morning streets of los angeles after the morning coffee, saying hello to the small dogs on leash/lead/ribbon (it happens here) also taking their walks (with their owners whose names we always forget which is terrible but oh-so-English to recall the what the canine is called)

and we’ll be smiling All Day.

isn’t life delicious?




About teamgloria

I used to make my living from writing. And then it all stopped and so I went and did something else, part of which entailed a whole new look from Brooks Brothers (it wasn’t really me, but it was necessary). But a decade later I started to write again (during nights and weekends and frustrated lunch-times and long haul business travel) and one of the things I wrote (or came to me – as I do believe in the whole Muse concept) was a character called Gloria. Gloria was a trainee angel and sat “up there” waiting for her first assignment. To occupy the hours she should have been studying humans and their foibles, she spent her time enjoying the new celestial movies-on-demand channel and became obsessed by Doris Day. So you can imagine the drama that unfolded when she came to Earth. Quite a shock to the system. But Gloria was determined to see Manhattan through the eyes of a vintage Doris Day movie and something magical started to happen – to me too. Because I started to do the same thing and life became easier (and then I got Tobias the tumor which changed the trajectory, for now). There are a lot of glorious people, places & things that help me get through my day – they make my life great – and so I call them “team gloria” (although they don’t usually know that). So I thought I’d start documenting them, and looking out for new people, places & things on a daily basis, and sharing them with you (whomever you are – do say hello. Oh, and tell me who your team gloria is :-)

  1. I am thrilled for you! CONGRATS!! Can’t wait to buy a copy!

  2. Gallivanta says:

    Smile some more! I went in to my local bookstore, and requested a copy of How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World. And they said they would love to but it will take about 10 days to cross the Tasman from the supplier (Penguin? she said) in Australia. Well, that is okay because that will still be earlier than April (for my pre-order. So glad it is a happy day.

    Eagerly waiting for my copy in Seoul! Can’t wait for it. :)

    Also, thought of you as I ran across Agnes Varda’s _Cleo de 5 a 7_ the other day, with the glorious and beautiful protagonist also awaiting diagnosis.

    Not only is it “here” but it is also here in my hot little hand as I sit and admire! It is such a lovely collection of thoughts, in words and pictures, and am in awe of the journey you took in getting to this point. Is it ok to say your scar has given us all so much? My best wishes, congratulations and grateful thanks to you!
