Since Last We Spoke, 9-16-19

It was so good to see so many of you in New Orleans last week. We had lively, packed sessions, which makes my heart happy. Lots of great discussions. I look forward to keeping that going here.

If you’re playing along at home, I’m at Ft. Bliss this week in El Paso, and as usual, my time is not my own. I will try to get a few posts up this week, but it may be pretty quiet. I had a very short turn around between trips, so I didn’t even get much chance to catch up on my feeds, but a few things caught my eye since last we spoke:

Rape as a woman’s first sexual experience

This beautiful piece about fear

After 9/11

Why don’t doctors trust women?
