A Kimchi Before You Go

i just received the exquisite Korean edition of my book, A Kiss Before You Go. The same publisher who created the K version of Everyday Matters did another amazing job, hand lettering all the type in crayon, pen and brush.  What an honor.  And how strange to see my private journals in a language I don’t understand!

The worst of times, the best of times.

What if:

You could know,
with absolute certainty,
that the worst day of your life was behind you.
And the second worst too.
Would that knowledge change how you lived,
what risks you took,
what dreams you had?

And what if you could know that
the best day of your life
was yet to come.
How would that change your life?

And, even if you couldn’t really know for sure,
what would happen if you lived
as if you did?

My debut on slate.com

I was fortunate to get a lovely review on slate.com this week.

I was also invited to illustrate all of the articles on their book review section this month. I haven’t done drawings for hire like this in a while but it was great fun. You can see all nine of them here.

I am traveling to Bangkok right now and writing this post in the Hong Kong flight club so it may take me a while to post all of the actual drawings here. Meanwhile, check me out on slate.

Two interviews I like

Here are two lengthyish radio interviews I did recently.

The first is with broadcasting legend Bob Edwards for his show on NPR and on XM Sirius satellite radio. In case you missed it, here’s a 30 minute recording with images from the book.

The second is with family therapist David McMillian on his show, Strategies for LIving.

You can hear that here.
