"Writing requires an aching curiosity leading you to discover, uncover, what is gnawing at your bones." (Terry Tempest Williams)
Asian-American women in Atlanta killed by a man who claimed he did it because he had a sexual addiction.
Women bravely naming what happened to them in the office of the current Governor of New York.
Girls and women spending countless precious hours of their lives trying to mold their bodies into the elusive shape of perfection.
Church leaders with sordid histories of sexual harassment and abuse discovered too late.
The long-lingering Christian theologies that keep women in secondary roles.
And also, all the amazing men who are champions of the women they know and love.
I am trying to make sense of it all.
All of this haunting me, gnawing at me, tangled up in my mind and soul and body.
I don't have an agenda. I don't even really have a plan.
I am trying to write myself to some answers. To some peace. To some kind of understanding.
I'd love your help, your thoughts, your stories, your presence.
"Writing requires an aching curiosity leading you to discover, uncover, what is gnawing at your bones."
How the world sees, treats, understands, empowers, disempowers women ... this is what is gnawing at my bones these days.
