It took me six years to be able to start writing this. It requires revisiting those times emotionally, not just academically. That’s not easy for me. I would not be doing this if I had not had the gift of taking the LIVESTRONG writing workshop with Kathrin Seitz (shameless plug) or being clued into Medium by incomparable Abby Norman (more shameless plugging).
So thank you, Pat Putnam . I love being teased by you. And I bet your mother did, too.
