Question of the Day

Suggested by Shaker bellist: "How has the place and time of your birth affected your life?"

I am a Gen X white cis woman born in exurban Indiana, in a community diverse enough that my earliest and lasting friendship was/is with a gay man of color, to parents who were public school teachers. Those are just the basic outlines. The truth is, the place and time — and circumstances — of my birth have affected just about every aspect of my life, in ways I know and ways I probably will never fully recognize.
