Family: My biological family, my lover, my friends, people I work with, pass on the street, read, and dream about. Animals, pictures of them, and people I never knew, enter my mind, and sometimes, cause my heart to ache; collectively, they create a gentle buffer to protect me in this world.

A few members of my family:
