A Love Letter

Had one of my best nights ever last night – yes, the night before Valentine’s Day! I went to the UCSB Arts & Lectures presentation of Gloria Steinem at the Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara. She was wonderful!

And, she's a wonderful writer. Have you ever read her "I was a Playboy bunny" expose? Really good stuff. Check it out here. It's easy for me to forget that she is a journalist. Seems her humanitarian work overshadows that nowadays. She is inspirational in every way.

Certainly, my life, and everyone else's in this country, and I don't think that is an exagerration, would be completely different if not for Gloria Steinem. Of course, she didn't accomplish all that single-handedly, but she was definitely one of the leaders. Thank you so much, Gloria. I look forward to reading your next book. Keep up the good work, and I'll keep up mine.
