Politically it saddens me that feminism is seen by some to still be fringe and that if we don’t make sandwiches and make everyone feel good first we are crazy radicals scary and best ignored. *sigh*
I wish everyone all the best in the New Year. May you find happiness in unexpected places and always have enough to keep body and soul together.
