    Wow. This has been really inspiring to read. Thank you for sharing yourself with us. I’m not sure I have the gumption to do what you’ve done, but a year ago (almost to the day) I created a “100 Random Facts About Me” post, and I’m humbled to share that with you in exchange for what you’ve shared with us:

    Happy Birthday, Bonnie. 🙂

    Okay, E (my nickname for you), that was awesome. You and I have *so* much in common. SO much! Wow! We will have a blast when I come to NY in October. 🙂

    Yeah, as you saw reading back through the whole “Sum of All Years” project, I posted a few things about how hard and how scary it was to do, but it was really worth it. Weeded out some relatives I’ve not spoken to since (“How DARE you shame our family by putting such LIES on the Internet!” = “You told the world you are broken and that makes us look bad. Hide your broken parts like we do, dammit.”) and brought me closer to people who are truly my FAMILY.

    Worth it. I’m living my truth: You can have fucked up shit happen in life and still live your dreams, be your best self, inspire others… all that cool stuff. 😉 Lucky, lucky me!
