No matter what I find myself doing, what interests me most is the possibility of connection. As a former community college English professor, writer, and massage therapist, I cherish the moments of connection when we may be gifted with insight, transformation, and a renewed sense of our belonging in the world. When we meet each other in a classroom, a poem, a painting, on a massage table, or anywhere—with openness, curiosity, vulnerability, and love—we enter a space of healing.
