Great list! You're amazing at encapsulating such a huge deal into a few concise words. It's been an incredible journey! You have brought them alive for me.

I'll put the books on my "to read" list :). Patty mentioned Kari's fall. Hope she's feeling better!

History of Love is great isn't it. If you liked that, you might like "The Memory of Running" by Ron McLarty. Also, went to Mexico City this summer and through Cuernavaca...didn't make it to Oaxaca, but heard it's B-eautiful. My step-dad tells me it's the greatest city in Mexico.
