    The proposal video was so sweet, but oh, Susannah! The Real Girl Belly project is what made ME sob … all magazines, everywhere, TAKE NOTE!!! We. Want. Real. We. Want. What. We. Are. Reflected. In. The. Media. We are so so so beautiful as we are — what are YOU afraid of?!!!

    I love the proposal and even more love the fact that most of the participants are part of Third Rail theater group in Portland and that my son, a sound designer, knows many of them, including the future bride and groom! It’s amazing that this video has gone completely viral around the world — just goes to show how people hunger for joy!! Also, sweet Susannah, when you’re in Portland this summer, be sure to go to Stumptown Coffee. I know you’ll love it!! And of course, what more is there to say about the Real Girl Belly project? It made me cry and is amazingly beautiful. Just as you are.

    Yay, you watched it! I was right, wasn’t I? I feel so good, part of the most amazing tribe of brilliance and strength when I watch it. And for those who mentioned they wished they could watch it–I don’t have cable either, but watch it online once they post it: http://www.theconversation.tv/show/ On one episode, Sarah Silverman said “The worst thing that can happen for people who don’t want women to be strong is that we help each other and become a force.” Girl power! :)
