I became a Kate Bornstein fan this week. I didn't mean to. I wasn't planning to. There was just this talk at Babeland, which if you live in Seattle and you're a babe you have to visit, so I was in the neighborhood...
She was fabulous, just fabulous. In the ballgame of public speaking she hit it into the next ballpark. (Sorry. Never was that good at sports metaphors.)
People laughed, cried, and wanted more.
Her basic message: life is worth living, and you can make it better, and here's how. And one more thing to anyone who wants it: a get out of Hell free card. Just don't be mean.
Nicely done, Kate.
