Cory's list for 2015

Wow – this year has been thrilling and exhausting and I have so much to be thankful for, here’s what I can think of right now while waiting on the two turkeys in my dad’s oven:

  • The miracle of birth and the powerful love that continues to grow within me for both Laura and Bayard
  • The incredible mother’s milk, and vegetable puree that is keeping Bayard healthy and growing strong
  • Children’s hospital in Chicago for keeping the Bay alive
  • The loving community that surrounds Bayard and the smiles he gives them back
  • Our new home and all the joy and trouble that comes with it
  • Moving within Chicago and feeling that we are in a new city
  • Fulfilling work
  • Being connected to social movements and having productive outlets for the anger and sadness I feel when I contemplate how messed up the world is
  • Summer trip to Buffalo
  • Lake Michigan
  • The Field Museum
  • Chance the Rapper

Favorite Album: Surf by Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment

Favorite Book: I have not read enough books this year to have a favorite… but Lexicon by Max Barry was a nice escape.

Favorite TV: True Detective (first season)
