Women and Happiness

Just wanted to let you all know that one of my former writing teachers, Ariel Gore, has a new blog these days, Women and Happiness. She is also about to have a new book, of almost the same name, Women and the New Psychology of Happiness, which I plan to get as soon as it's out.
