Thanks to everyone who helped, supported, collaborated, and talked  this year. I’m glad I got to share it with you.

John Darnielle from the Mountain Goats said some words this time last year that he addressed “to my fellow abuse survivors” that I thought of many times since I read them.

Staying alive is an active choice, a verb. I hope you hold yourself close this year and the next.
