There’s what you want and what you get.
Sometimes you find that what you wanted wasn’t the best thing for you anyway.
Desires of the body, the stomach, the heart, do not always point us in the right direction.
What you want at 20 changes by 30, 40, 50.
For a friendship or love relationship to work out, some of that desire has to overlap.
We wanted to write, to raise our kids together, to enjoy our lives together, to race toward the moon.
Some of that shifts, but the core stays the same.
I am amazed by how much love there is in the world in spite of everything. How much joy.
Two wonderful writers, Meredith and Liz are staying at our house, Liz Kay is reading tonight at the Annenberg. She wanted to be a writer, and she is one. Come to the Annenberg Beach House!
