After much trepidation, I just posted the announcement of my editorial retirement. Now that the word is out, how do I feel? As if I’ve just stepped out from the shadows.
Of course, I created those shadows on my own. Like so many (TOO many), I suffer from a chronic case of debilitating insecurity and an unwillingness to put myself first. But if the events of the past year and a half have taught me anything, it’s that I don’t have time for this shit. None of us do. We have stories to tell.
And nobody puts Baby in the corner, not even Baby herself.
