Happy Friday (Central US time), Groupthinkers! I hesitate posting, because I'm kinda shy. I lurk quite a bit, starring the posts I see that resonate to me. I just have to say that all of you have heightened my awareness of what is going on in the world... from things related to feminism, racism, LGBTQ issues, politics, to things like food, TV shows, fashion, nails and hair and make-up, and pets (team cat FOREVAH!), not to mention the WINEZ. I cannot believe how wonderful everyone is here with helping each other out when there is adversity... I may not have the nerve just yet to post things of substance, but I love you all so much, and am so happy to be a part of the hivemind! You have enlightened me on so many fronts, I can't thank you enough! I have been here for a while, and know I'm a relative stranger, but you all are the best, and I'm happy to be here (albeit quitely). Peace, friends...
