Excerpt “The Year of Yes”

“The sinful stories that earned me prayer as penance during recess are the same stories that now allow me to buy a bottle of wine plus a steak at the grocery store and not worry about the price. Being able to buy wine and steak and not think about the price is very important to me. It was a goal. Because when I was a struggling graduate student in film school, I often had no money. And so I often had to choose between wine and things like toilet paper. Steak did not even enter into the equation.

It was wine or toilet paper.



Toilet paper.

The toilet paper did not always win.”

Wine and steak and not worrying about the price = new life goal.
