This is my 100th Medium story.

Nope, I’m not going to share my work. (Check my profile!) Instead, let’s discuss the best part of Medium: other writers. I now have friends around the world with different backgrounds, lifestyles, and beliefs who enrich my life daily. Here are just a few (I only have 150 words!).

  • Sarah J. Baker — Awesome Aussie with passion for the environment and equality
  • Kristi Keller — A skillful, spirited writer whose work takes me to new places with joy
  • Kim McKinney — My soul sister in North Carolina whose words make me laugh and cry
