This morning I ran into a sad friend. She'd spent the previous evening with a couple of fabulous couples, all strappy sandals and flowery dresses and lively stories about lovely children. Their fabulousness all seemed so effortless, my friend said.

One day, you realize how absurd your current mindset is, that this shit doesn't matter.

As a woman in her thirties, I see the challenge to female self-worth as a mother raising young boys in the world. I think about the kind of respect I want them to have for women. I also see it as a woman thinking about what I want to accomplish in life as the wrinkles are beginning to form.

For as long as I can remember, I've hidden myself. I definitely started hiding when I got old enough to walk down my NY streets alone.
