These are some powerful questions that happened to land in my lap at an interesting time.

I think I've always combated inertia by reading/viewing/exploring something inspiring. It doesn't matter what the genre or medium is--there's knowledge in all of it.

Sexual Abuse Memoirs: They're Still Relevant

When I started this blog, I wanted to start a conversation relevant to my memoir, but I was afraid I would exhaust the subject--or that the subject would exhaust me. The sad truth is the topic of sexual abuse, assault, harassment, and molestation cannot be exhausted. At least not in our current society.

The news provides a constant stream of horror stories of high profile cases. Politicians, scout Read more of this blog post »
