35 years ago,
on january 14, 1975,
i was born at 6:01 in the morning.
i was born in maine,
in the snowy winter.
it was 20 degrees below zero.
my mom waited to finish watching the mary tyler moore show before leaving for the hospital.
funny when i think about it, because my mom never watches tv.
i guess when it's 20 below you use any excuse to stay inside, even if you are in labor.
(my mom & me-little toddler susannah- on the car ferry in casco bay, maine.)

thanks, mom, for having me.
i like being alive.
