For someone who loves math, I don’t add up.
I’m a cool nerd. A feminine tomboy.
Tough but fragile. Wild and domestic.
Good mother but bad girl.
Educated but still a project girl.
An urbanite stuck in the suburbs.
I am the sum of everything that’s happened to me,
and the evolution past ALL of it.
Mysterious and cosmic forces, forces greater than we can understand, conspired to bring together this group of extraordinary women.
I adore them.
We laugh every day. Sometimes through tears.
All my life, I’ve looked for a place where I could fit in.
Where I could be exactly who I am, and not be judged for it.
We’ve suffered and fought; been broken, but never defeated.
We acknowledge the pain, and then move forward – to the silver linings.
I want you to come here and play with us.
Be brave with us.
Be inappropriate, rebellious, reckless, or sad. Rejoice, if that’s where your heart takes you.
Allow us to support you as you explore life’s messy beautiful.
Don’t be afraid to lean into your darkest midnight black.
Yes. It can be brutal.
But it beats the hell out of bland Gap khaki beige, every time.
So, WRITE FREE.
Alone we are enough, but together we are stronger.
