Thanks Suzanne! I completely agree with what you said about wanting to be proximate to power and wealth. I suppose I could have laid that out more plainly. I’ll see if I can do a small edit that will illuminate that part more fully — one of the many joys of self-publishing on Medium is the ability to edit any time!

I don’t think you’d made me aware of the Roxane Gay article, but thanks — I’ll go read it now! Much appreciated!!
