  1. Note to self: try not to wander astray

    It's been tough to stay positive. To not feel just totally defeated. I had written a long post here about everything but decided to delete it.

    All I will say is, in case any of you happen to be wondering why there are so few women (insert profession here) throughout history, it's because of oppression in various forms: stigma attached to a professional woman, books not being published or purchased, men taking the work and putting their own name on it.

    "Triplet" ...
