In an act of what felt like self preservation at the time, I decided to shut down my blog, instinctively turning to the hope that visually receding was the best antidote when faced with antagonization.
After much inspiration, deliberation, and trepidation, I am restoring order and returning to the blogosphere.
I am doing this for one reason.
I had the privilege to experience empathy and kindness in numbers that took me by surprise. So to the ladies who supported me, whose words brought tears to my eyes, and restored my faith, I thank you.
And this one’s for you.
