I like it when people clap or decide to follow me, but I don’t write here for that purpose. I write for me and to have a place where my voice can be spoken into a larger context. Whether or not it ultimately reaches anyone or connects with them is gravy. I wanted to stop hiding who I was without having to jeapordize my privacy but mostly I just wanted to speak up, regardless of outcome.
