Words to live by

“There would be both more and less/of me to have to bear.  None of us/
would be forced to be stronger/ than we could be. Each of us could/be all of us.”

From “I Wish I Had More Sisters” by Brenda Shaughnessy.

I find this to be far less of a problem when you’ve spent any time at all online and been lucky enough to make friends with women bloggers and women in fandom.  Thanks to all my sisters, online and in real life, who’ve been so fantastic of late, for helping me figure out what “stronger” can be.
