My mentor, Peggy Payne*, had an essay in Sunday’s New York Times. It’s a lovely piece, and I’m over-the-moon excited for her. I think being published in the “paper of record” is pretty good vindication, don’t you?
Revenge is sweet, indeed.
*I’m a little embarrassed to use the word mentor. It feels like I’m saying “Hello! I think you’re totally awesome and I want to sit at your feet and soak up everything you say!” And while that’s not something I’d ever say to anyone’s face, it is, in this case, exactly what I feel, so there you have it. I am owning my awkward adoration.
You have read Sister India, haven’t you? If not, go get it right now. You’ll love it.
