On my way to meet @MaazaMengiste when a woman caught up with me to say that via @cbcopen she’d seen my TEDxEuston talk. “Thank you for your bravery, for speaking when so many of us can’t.” And she started to cry and I did too and we hugged. google.com/amp/s/www.cbc.… #7necessarysins

She apologized for interrupting my journey and I told her but I thanked her for stopping me. It means the world to me when someone tells me my work resonates with them. And now I know that this next book I’m writing which terrifies and thrills me must be written
I’m a big believer that when something terrifies you - like this next book in which I’m saying things I’ve never said before - it is because you need it; you need to say it. I need to speak it. And someone - hopefully many - need it too.
