Authenticity …

Gay Junk. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Katie was one of my favorite reviewers when I was The Inquirer’s book editors. The passage she quotes here from Cassandra Snow’s book is wonderful: 
 “If you try a prayer to the Earth, a god, your ancestors, the Universe, love, and it doesn’t work, if your inner critic comes out or your trauma screams “wrong,” that’s okay. Step away for a few minutes. You’ll get there. Try easing into it slowly. A quick prayer that is literately just “thank you” when you get unexpected luck or a despairing “please help” when you’re feeling your absolute worst is enough. The intention is clear. The Divine is listening. You’ll grow slowly from there.”
