      It never ceases to amaze me how utterly different people can be. This Lisa Miller person is so totally unlike me that I wouldn't hesitate to classify us as a separate species.

        It’s fascinating, isn’t it? And Readup is a perfect place to discover humans that seem like a different species!!

          Ha! But SO necessary to see the variety, to break out of a “me” bubble to get a much wider sense of the diversity. I’ll never forget the shock of my realization of all the misogynists and racists post Trump election. And the conspiracy theorists! It blew my mind but was a really important wake up call!

      Tough but appreciating a man/partner who warms the milk when he makes her coffee. Everyone needs care. Easy to be confused about independence. Connection doesn’t reduce independence, it is is essential to it.

        The song is beautiful, the image disheartening. Thanks for posting, always interesting and new to me!

      I love lisa Miller’s writing. This story was something I could really relate to. “Women succeed by building their worlds, not by fitting into worlds built for them.” Highly recommend this piece.
