Book composed primarily of Caring Bridge entries by my old friend and bodywork ethics writer Nina McIntosh over the 15 months between her diagnosis of ALS and her death in July 2010 at age 67.

“When you hear about gay pride, do not think of the silly men in their drag queen outfits — think of kids being kicked out of their homes for something all evidence shows is genetic. Think of the higher rate of suicide, alcoholism, drug abuse among young gay people. Think of the children growing up in a church where they are taught to love God but taught that God has no place for them, no matter how good they are.
