I come from a long line of selves built in chaos, in quicksand. My family is no stranger to tragedy—my mother suffered through two funerals (her sister’s and her father’s) during her pregnancy with me—we take emotional blows like seasoned boxers.

I had the great pleasure of guest blogging for Moving Peaces‘ series on Finding Self. The post, about finding self in the midst of tragedy and chaos, went up on Saturday, and you can read the rest here.
