Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Henry David Thoreau
“I’ve grown up feeling judged by my size first and other factors second. This is probably an experience many women have, not just large ladies like me. We’re so obsessed by slimness and the obesity ‘epidemic’ and the BMI, it makes me preposterously cranky. Women are encouraged to go on a diet until they’re too skinny, then they’re told to eat a sandwich. I think our culture is far too interested in what people weigh.”

The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are.
