Heather Armstrong & me (on youtube)

You can see youtube clips of the talks that Heather & I gave at the recent Sunstone Symposium [note: my trusty ol' laptop is so RAM-deficient that I can't preview either of these--can y'all let me know if they're any good?]:

Thanks for sharing your stories, and the videos of them. I was wondering if either of you were going to put them up. I'm scarily similar to you two, in nature, in history, and in the blog world. The only difference really...is the fact that my one "true" blog, the one that told how I really feel about things...has all but been abandoned because of my non-courage to face my family on how I really feel. You give me strength.

Holla atcha girl.

I cried again.
I so feel what you mean about not saving any enjoyment for heaven but enjoying your husband and kids every day like it's your last day or like there is nothing the here and now.

I feel so much more fulfilled and hopeful since life became a here and now thing rather than a 'I hope I make it to good good place when I due' thing.'

Fabulous video and writings. I have been reading them for the past week.

I thought about you last week while going through airport security. My husband wears full leg braces and walks on crutches. I carry on a computer and photography gear. Also, tripods in the checked luggage so they always get searched. We cause TSA much heartburn when we travel!

Keep on writing, I'll be reading! Thanks!

You are amazing. You give me faith that perhaps my dad doesn't always see me as a pain in his ass. I'm sure you're a wonderful parent.

You're making me sad I couldn't make it to Sunstone this year. Of course, had I been there I can't promise that I wouldn't have completely pulled focus with my sobbing and noseblowing. :)
