Ashley — I’ve never seen Mean Girls … wait! Please come back. OK, phew. I just want to say that I’m also a personal essayist. I don’t keep up with the trends enough (obviously) to know that it’s a dead art, although I have read some headlines about it. But, how can story ever be dead? It’s how we relate to each others as humans. It’s timeless. It’s necessary. I will persist and I hope you will, too.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
