When I was going through the most challenging times in my life, I wanted nothing more than to read something — anything — from someone who had been there before me and had come out the other side in one piece.
And then there were the times when I felt totally isolated; when what I was going through was so immensely private I dared not tell anybody out of embarrassment or shame or both. Surely someone has been through this before me, I would think to myself. I’m not the first. I’m not the only one.
July 05, 2016I recently recorded an interview for StoryCorps (featured on NPR) in a tiny Airstream in the parking lot of National Public Radio’s studios here in Nashville (you can listen to it here). There sat my husband, myself, and a perfectly lovely producer who was completing her last interview before heading back to NYC. I spoke on the subject of giving back. Which really begins with the story of how, over the last ten years, I have been methodically reinventing myself.
