“Because when some people are invisible, everyone suffers.” – Gloria Steinem
months ago, I was standing in my local fabric store, looking at miles and miles
of fasteners, knowing I was far out of my creative depth. (To call my sewing
skills “adequate” would be charitable, if I’m being honest.)
As I stood considering, a lady browsing nearby flagged down a store employee and requested help to find a specific item. The employee slowed just slightly and gestured vaguely toward where I stood, saying, “Oh, there’s probably something down there” before continuing past the woman.
