Cheryl comes for an awesome fucking visit.

Notes on Gratitude

"Books will save your life."

I believe this sentiment 100 percent. I hope you do, too. I hope you've experienced many, many times the feeling that comes the moment you read something--a sentence or a phrase or a word--when you know you will forever have a new and broadened perspective, when someone puts into words what you've only ever felt, and when your heart expands in front of the pages of an open book. Seeing Cheryl in person was a lot like this.

Also, CONTENT WARNING. If you’re a fan of Cheryl's, you know she's fond of dropping a f-bomb or two. As the author of the Dear Sugar columns on The Rumpus, her motto was Write Like A Motherf***er. If anyone’s wondering what to get me for Christmas, I’ll take a mug! FYI: There are several naughty words in this post, regardless of the fact it's about gratitude.
