Below are links that moved my soul recently. Each one made me cry out loud, snot dripping, hands in the air, reading aloud to others, and shouting “MEEE TOOO!” I love the internet.
If you want to see brave, read THIS. A piece on our bodies, sacred and scarred.“The one of the belly with the craters and the canyons, unblemished skin drawn haphazardly next to the skin that laid down and said, “I cannot do this.

If you want to see powerful, read THIS. A piece on our parenting, sacred and scarred.“Because that’s the crux of it, isn’t it? I could have turned his hearing aid on, problem solved.

Just turn the damn hearing aid back on and make it better.”
