I have something to say. That’s why I’m writing a memoir and speaking. But I keep hearing that it’s important to have a platform. That scares me. I’ve never been great with heights and a platform feels like something I’ll fall off of, or forget to keep building.  But it’s important. So this blog is my first step. I’m building a platform. Climbing into the new and very scary world of “social media” and letting someone –is anyone out there? –know that I have something to say…  Thank you Miriam Hendeles for holding my hand as I climb shakily onto this new height.
