Feeling So Honored

It was a bit of a Sally Field moment for me last night (You like me, you really like me), when I was presented the Lowell Thomas Gold Award from the Society of American Travel Writers Foundation for the “Best Guidebook 2010″ for my book, Frommer’s 500 Places Where You Can Make a Difference. The award was unexpected (not a surprise last night, but it was a huge surprise when they informed me a few weeks ago) and a nice up moment on what has been a roller coaster of a year.

You needn’t read my book to find a way to be of service…but find a way. Volunteer. Be bigger than you are, audacious in what you decide to accomplish, and unstoppable in your cause, whatever that may be.
