I tend to be overly verbose, so here’s all I’ll say about this:
- I hope people read it (obviously).
- I am grateful to Huffington Post Gay Voices for the opportunity.
- I am grateful to Tori Amos for her time and all the gifts she continues to give audiences.
- More people need to listen to this person; she is as full of wisdom as Maya Angelou, and as poetic–and that’s a serious compliment–and yet not known by most for her wisdom. Amos is a sage, and she has important messages of compassion and empathy, and humility, that are conspicuously absent in this world.
