so great to see your One Big Happy Family being recognized and appreciated in so many places! great clip!

Comment #2 by Craig Swieso on June 13, 2009 - 7:38am

I'm the father in a traditional family of Caucasian, cul-de-sac dwelling suburbanites. We're more like the Bundys than the Waltons.

When I was a kid, I would've been thrilled if my dad always wanted to hug me and tell me he loved me. I want to give the same to my sons, but the irony is that they generally don't want to have any part of it. If it weren't for mocking me, they'd probably give me no attention.

Here's my point to all of this: Irrespective of how your family is configured, if you have kids, they'll soon quit being impressed with you and really aren't that shy about letting you know it. You won't earn their respect until they become parents. Then they'll realize what little shits they were.

Those who say they love kids are usually talking about infants, babies and toddlers. However, sooner or later they grow up to be people. Then you gotta deal with them on a completely different level. Did you ever think you might unconditionally love someone who can kinda be an asshole?

You look BEAUTIFUL by the way!

Your latest book sounds very interesting, great to see someone highlighting the different forms of family that exist. I was brought up in a family of seven, three of my siblings were my fathers by his first wife.

Can I be a little fresh and enquire if you are with child?
If you are congratulation, if not lol.

Keep up the good work Rebecca.

Comment #7 by rebecca on June 14, 2009 - 12:51am

Oh dear! Am I looking pregnant? That is sooo not good. I'm going to have get back to Pilates.

Thanks for all the nice words. We shall see about the novel...

I hear you Craig. 

Comment #8 by Super Amanda on June 14, 2009 - 4:02am

Oh yes PLEASE, do write fiction for us! Cintra Wilson write a great book about the 1980's called "Colors That Insult Nature" and she came from our Bay Area. I think you'd write a great book on the 70's , 80's or 90's.

Gyrotonics is better than pilates btw, this coming from someone who is certified in the latter and who spent gobs of money on it until I discovered Gyrotonics. You'll love it if you have not already tried it.

Comment #9 by rebecca on June 14, 2009 - 9:56pm
I tried Gryotonics and almost killed myself! So much dynamic movement and all those circular movements--but I do get the "in motion" aspect. I will look to see if I can find here on island.
Comment #10 by Super Amanda on June 15, 2009 - 4:36am

Yes, it can be taught to where you can become too hyper mobile just as pilates can make one into a walking box if too much extension and not enough flexion is taught, but the instructor should avoid letting you become the human gyroscope with legs and arms spinning like the Vitruvian Man on E !

imho, it really is he Gyrotonic Yoga mat work that grounded me. as much as i love the machines the mat work is where its at.

I trained with Master Trainer Tamara Yoneda in SF and she now lives on your island and I know you'll love her: She is a fellow Buddhist and a lovely human being like yourself. Tell her Amanda Casabianca from the White Cloud Oak street studio days sent you.

You look great on TV, btw: I envy your jawline!

Comment #11 by Danielle LaPorte on June 15, 2009 - 6:04am

Love how many times you to use the word Love. Prime time needs more of you.

Comment #12 by Merva on June 15, 2009 - 3:27pm

I didn't mean you look heavy! I thought your wonderful glow is due to you being what you are not not. I won't make the mistake and say it again.:)

Thanks for being you and having such a positive outlook on life you help keep me(and others) grounded.

Wishing you and your family all the best, Namaste.

Comment #13 by SuperAmanda on June 16, 2009 - 10:55pm

Off topic, but this is really bothering me:

The new IKEA commercials are inane. They feature a single upwardly mobile white or Chinese woman fixing up her home and being indecisive and a tad stressed, while an older Black woman offers folk wisdom with a mildly stereotypical accent mumbling in the background. This would not be so bad if the Black woman was not INVISIBLE to the white woman in this weird “Sixth Sense” style set up. Why couldn’t they actually be friends or neighbors? Why not have them exchanging anecdotes and snappy rejoinders as equals. just abysmal...

Loved seeing you on the video. Would rather have seen you in real time but didn't know about it and as I get older and more conscious I might add, I find myself turning on the 'tube' less and less unless I want to watch a specific thing. Why am I paying for cable anyhow?? Anyway, great to see you, will read your latest book like I have read all the others and I too felt the love from you thru the video. It comes through and that is an awesome thing Rebecca. Keep up the good work.

The author seeks to explore the different ways in which people come together to form a family and the special challenges that they face as they work to ensure the ties that they have formed are lasting and strong.

Comment #17 by Bev on December 17, 2009 - 4:43pm

Congratulations, you must have been so pleased to have appeared on the show. It's certainly a very interesting area of conversation because "conventions" are being broken all the time as people just want to live the life they want to lead.

Comment #27 by Karen on May 4, 2011 - 3:18am

I think it is good that the book tackles different story of mixed marriage, adoption, single motherhood to name a few. It also discussed on how traditional nuclear American family has changed. One Big Happy Family is also about the pursuit of love and family and wholeness.

I am extremely glad to go through the lively interview in the video talking a great deal about important points in the book. It is nice watching and listening to the grreat talk. thanks.

Comment #29 by dr marlene on May 31, 2011 - 8:01pm

It really confers a sense of satisfaction to discover the American family from her point of view. However, it is the time we are living in when family disintegrates fast. Thanks for sharing the adorable facts.

Comment #30 by bed bug ny on June 4, 2011 - 10:52am

Family in general is weakening day by day. Its true meaning is changing due to changing roles of its individuals. The bond in the family is almost fallen apart. Family ethics, culture and models do not relate to the reality. However, as I perceive, you've a good news for them.

Comment #31 by gwen on July 19, 2011 - 3:33am

Family is the most important treasure a person could have. It is not all of us are lucky to have well lived family life and that if you have one, you are consider very fortunate.. I personally admire parents who raises their family so well and their kids were brought up in a way that they are responsible.

Comment #41 by sophie williams on August 21, 2012 - 4:51am

I believe that the most essential part of a any relationship is the freedom to express one's own view. This leads to the understanding among the family members and makes the bonding even more strong. A happy family becomes more happier and always stays together.

Comment #45 by unlimited email marketing course Spratly Islands on November 6, 2014 - 2:05am

A self cleaning tool from such type of application cleans useless data
from databases. Email marketing is what I prefer to call a sub-category of affiliate marketing, or any
way of online business with the matter. People could possibly
have talked less about e-mail marketing but it does not imply that it has become relegated.
However, relying 100% on the search engines on your traffic is a disaster waiting to happen. With the
growing popularity of online marketing, many strayegies of website marketing have been developed to reach the targeted audience.
However, for it you must provide thhat content that is related for
the original email or message. When you might be planning the information you need to capture in the survey, think about what may be useful in your business.

So if the targeted users are on email, that's that you should be
too. Email strategy should started with a target. No easy answers but history, past successes is often the connection for
your future.

Your life after you retire should be an enjoyable one,
not a life full of problems. Or, click on the address, and immediately see a map of the
business' location. Consult the doctor for more pregnancy information regarding pregnancy exercises.
It's becoming increasingly clear that revenue-hungry companies are
cutting corners that jeopardize our privacy.

What to do when the tattoo you decided upon in the past, is no longer
wanted. So, the individual must make a vigilant choice of fonts
while selecting a particular font or calligraphy font as the tattoos are a
permanent mark. These tattoo marks have it origins and the very reasons
why people did them. Whether they're going by what
they suspect, showing that they belong to a certain group or
clan, or harking back to the dearly departed there are always meanings behind tattoos.
