@stonefruit Mom? Is that you?

Just kidding. Yes, I am in the middle of a second draft of a memoir. If you know anyone who wants it, let me know. And thank you. You are seriously nice.

On The Only Mystery In Vermillion, South Dakota

@causedbycomma Not really. I was there for an hour, when I drove through with my mom once. We went to our old church. It was miserable. I wish I had something wiser to say. But I don't. People told me I looked the same. That was depressing.

On You Are, Was, and Always Will Be Pussy Control

I just read that op-ed and I was all, "Interesting and thoughtful. Okay." But then, I read this and I was all, "OOOHH RIGHT!" So, what I'm saying is Prince always makes things so much clearer. Love this.

On $3 Million for 7 Weeks

This story is so perfectly at the intersection of health care, love, loss, cost and worth--where there are no easy answers. Thank you for writing it.

On Too Emotional, Too Sensitive, Too Much

I love this. I think I'm raising a little you. Today she cried bc I refused to wear something not black. Anyway. I think part of my reason for hiding emotion is because all too often it's used against me. Students (I sometimes teach) see it as a sign of weakness and assume that they can exploit it. Employers use it as a reason to dismiss you. But I do understand the power of muchness and bearing witness. I sometimes volunteer at a woman's shelter where tears there have meant so much to me. Also, yay for Leslie Jamison and you.
