The Cure - Who Wants One? Anyone?

 
“Should I tattoo my scar? What would it say?” – Marilyn Hacker
 
It is strange to know that some day your body might kill you.
 
My grandmother has had both of her breasts removed: one before I was born, and one was removed just two years ago. I was with her at the doctor’s appointment when they found the lump. I was in the waiting room when they removed her breast and the lymph nodes near her chest.

the journey

back roads
 
My gender has everything and nothing to do with my life, but my life has everything to do with my education. My education has been from living in the in-between. I have learned about the world around me by moving between cultures, slipping between the cracks, and pulling myself out of them.
I have always been an “old soul:” I have always felt tired.
