Thursday, 27 April 2006 - School of hard knocks

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for the school of hard knocks and the university of experience.

You can get all A's and still flunk life. ~Walker Percy

I got all A's yet I learned soon after graduating from UCLA that I don't want to flunk life.

At age 52 and counting, I am still earning a practical PhD that fully embraces the broad sweep and minute details of my experience and purpose. My dissertation - one woman's life from A to Z written in tears, laughter and poetry - remains a work in progress.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
