Dear Tani,  You’ve taught me to be w/ discomfort & pain & that it’s easier to do when we are together. You’ve shown me a model for taking personal healing public and make space for us all to do it together. You’ve pushed for more radical understanding of health community & love, even when you were hurting. You’ve shown me a path of witnessing & honoring & I am so thankful for the opportunity & trust to show up.  Love you, Sylvia
