Last Saturday I met up with Dani for lunch.
We met back in Women's Lit in 2013 and I was immediately impressed. Articulate, intelligent, and thoughtful, Dani made the class far more intriguing and challenging than it would have been on its own.
Two years later, we've both come through some rough adjustments, but I am still impressed by Dani's fortitude and perseverance in the face of mighty trial. I think life is coming into focus for both of us, one step at a time.
Dani started a new blogging project that I believe is a wonderful place to find inspiration when searching for how to nurture the self. The blog is called Explorations in Self-. The hyphen leaving plenty of room for definition however anyone can or does. I'm touting the project because so often self is trampled for unhealthy cultural/societal expectations. In the end, suppression of self compounds initial inability to conform. It effectually turns us on ourselves.
So if you're looking for an outlet, or just a place to relate to others on the journey, check out Dani's blog.
