If, like Lidia Yuknavitch, I were given an opportunity to go to New York and meet with three authors of my choice - any authors! - I would choose Elizabeth Gilbert, Jon Krakauer and...
Actually, I don't know whom the third would be. I may have to think about it a little longer.
Adam Foss and Toni Mac have given spectacular (!) speeches at TED this year; well, well worth a listen to.
I may have mentioned The Girlie's love for all things pink. Cue a set of pink butterfly wings our neighbours gave her for her second birthday.
If she could, she'd wear them to bed.
