I believe we're all connected. We may not physically know one another, but how can we be strangers when we're all sharing in one collective human experience?

My writing is a conscious effort to illustrate this. I am passionate about documenting life in an effort to bridge the gaps between us, expose our innumerable similarities, and increase empathy for, and acceptance of, one another.

Recently I wrote about a difficult period I went through and a reader emailed to say she endured a similar experience and my article made her feel less alone. She commented, "I like what you write because it rings so true. Whether it's about a make-up product, your experiences in New York or college rush, I relate. Kindred Spirits? Perhaps."

Not perhaps. Definitely.

United through our stories, we are all Familiar Strangers.

Please check out my two new books: What Doesn't Kill You: A Mini Memoir About Suffering and Surviving a Brain Bleed, is available for purchase on Amazon and Createspace.com; and my e-book,
From Loss to Healing: Personal Tales about the First Year of Bereavement, is on sale at Smashwords.com!
