My warmest thanks to Susan of KnitAJourney Podcast for the delightful chat and interview, which you can find here. It was a blast for me, Susan--thanks for making me sound so coherent!

OMG!!! KnittingBrow and PhotoSteve actually declared September 8  to be "Dr. Gemma Appreciation Day"! I'm not kidding! I had my own day and everything! What a cool 50th birthday present! It's right here. And don't worry--it's never too late to appreciate me (insert smirk).

Strategy: Follow your bliss. Expect delays and detours. But follow your bliss!


Something I Really Like:  My new office. A room of one's own, indeed.
 
Blather: Ch--ch-ch-changes.... I squeal at last on the the rotten team-mates to the Chief Psychologist and his Assistant, I crash brutally, I see lots of doctors, I get a lot of love and support, and I get a private practice. And I study chemistry like a madwoman. Top it all off with an emotional and heartfelt expression of gratitude at getting to turn 50 and have the best listeners out there.

I can't find episode 96. I think there was a delay.
Is this a plot to get me to ask for a strategy on patience? :)

Listening from your beginning podcast. I can only do knit purl stitch for scarf. You asked who your listeners are. We I hardly ever knit..i am a quilter. But I love the cognitive therapy section as I have had a son with traumatic brain injury...alcohol and drug abuse. Love the strategies and psychology talk. Uplifting and helpful to me. Car noise drives me nuts but content so great. Thanks.
