I just read your blog, or part, because Artie Bigley notified me of it. I’ve never met him or even spoken to him. But he sends me news items for possible use on www.topfree.ca.
I also edit a naturist/nudist journal in Canada that is read in the USA some. As a university professor, I have informally counselled manypeople, mostly women, who have had many different problems.
That’s enough background, I hope. I want to say very loudly that your writing is marvelous and your fierce detachment from your previous problems is inspiring. I may well refer some of my current students to your site.
(I’ve also walked the “Bare to Breakers” twice (1999 and 2000; I can’t run 7.5 miles) but have never braved a Burning Man.)
Every good wish for your challenges and successes!
