Dear Lucy,

Welcome to Medium! The real writing that comes from within vulnerability, from writing from places of discomfort & pain & honesty & love — that is where writing here is birthed. That’s why it’s different from “work” writing, which doesn’t have to do with writing from the soul or the heart but rather the head, a place of logic & cold calculation.

This is why I block people who write about crypto currency here (that & they’re trying to sell me something). There’s no heart there, no depth, nothing good.

That’s why your writing is fantastic! Wonderful! Warm! Keep writing here, on Medium & we’ll keep appreciating you!

Writer and storyteller, immigrant, wife, mom, knitter, collector of jokes, lover of cheap, sweet wine.
