I am humbled and excited and genuinely mindblown to announce that I have been chosen as a 2004 Writer Who Makes a Difference by The Writer Magazine (along with Jane Yolen, the late George Plimpton, and three other wonderful recipients. If you pick up the January, 2005 issue, you can see the feature article.) This award feels somewhat premature--I feel as if I am just beginning to do the work I'm supposed to do on this planet--but it inspires me to go further, to push deeper, to use my words for greater and greater good.

Congratulations, Gayle, on a well-deserved award! It feels wonderful to see you honored in this way as I cannot imagine this world without your voice in it! Your pure heart, expressed through your words, does indeed make a difference!

Oh, what a lovely comment to come back to! I've been off line for so long (our internet provider went out of business and we were left high and dry for awhile)--it's so good just to be connected, but to return to a message like this...well, all I can say is, I'm very grateful. I wish you weren't anonymous, so I could thank you properly, but please know that your words mean a great deal to me.
