    eta: there is a lot on this site well worth sharing.

    eta2:
    "So today I take this new direction with my writing and add my voice to all those speaking out online.

    I hope that many will relate to what I have to say, particularly now that I can express myself with greater freedom than previously.

    I also hope that my words will reach beyond ME circles and into the wider world.

    Our lives have been hidden for too long."
