    A wonderful writing teacher I had way back when told me that the writer’s job in society is to tell the truth. Being a truthteller is never easy. Getting up in front of people in some hallowed halls of literary-dom to read your truth also not easy.

    Being the canary in the coal mine isn’t easy. Being the canary that dares to sing is also not easy.

    And you’re doing all these “not easy” things, Lunden. You’re passing all these tests of the hero, Lunden. You’re damned right you’re a hero! And you damned well did come, see, and conquer. Woo hoo!

    I, for one, am so proud of you and so proud to know you. Sing, Girl, Sing! We’ve got to hear your song, especially because you sing it so beautifully.
