2019 - Georgia & Me is being rebirthed. Ive been inspired to come back to it realizing Im a different person at this point than when I wrote it in 2010. For one thing, Im older and have deepened my understanding of why Georgia was important in 2010 and why its asking me to revisit now. The Me Too movement has charged our air with urgency to bring about new understanding and new expectations. Georgia & Me has relevancy in this new era!
