Extended families have made a big difference in my life.
- I've been lucky in love and have had a succession of
lovers. We made homes together and lived a family-style life
there. The stories are spread across more than 40 years of
living, which makes the retelling especially difficult. But
I plan to try. Collectively, the episodes comprise my own family
- Two extraordinary women, very special friends, became
central to my life several years ago. There is much to say
about my Smith/Hays extended family.
