You Need Unique New York, You Know?
I have so many questions about how I will conduct myself in today’s United States. I have so many questions about how we converse to address hard hate. Ours is a country of multiplicity, and a country of unbridled spite. We march for personal freedoms, and we march for the Alt-Right. How can we cope with our divisions and our President’s revisions?

My partner and I wound up in Lille this week – a spontaneous trip to visit friends from France and Moldova!
