I'M JUST SAYIN':Weird Stuff for Independent Voters and Mothers of All Stripes

Here's something weird for ya' -- in a search for "Whitney Larkin" (an indomitable young woman, a grassroots organizer for CUIP) -- word has it she was in the Styles Section of the New York Times on Sunday... (not surprised--she's definitely on the cutting edge of style!) -- I came across this article by Ann Hood about the sad and unfortunate loss of her daughter Grace and her subsequent adoption of a Chinese child and then a near-death experience with that child.... 


But here's the weird part: the title of the article that came up in the Google search was "To Mother Again, With Courage" [which in my weird Nancy Hanks World was a word play on Bertold Brecht's play Mother Courage, one production of which I saw at Target Margin in NYC] but which was titled "To Nurture Again, With Courage" on the online version.


I'm just sayin'....

Gwen -- thanks for noticing! This post was too weird even for me, and I have a very high tolerance for weirdness...! It was an unusual convergence of the 4th kind... inspired by a seminar that I attended at Baruch on social media. Might have been more interesting to mention that... Onward! :-)
