Sleep Deprivation: Why It’s No Joke For Visionaries

I remember exactly what I was wearing when I walked into the Kroger supermarket in Little Rock, Arkansas to buy light bulbs: dark blue jeans with two vomit stains from my 8-month-old, a black t-shirt with rice cake droppings and my hair was pulled back with two hair clips, Melissa Gilbert-esque Little House on the Praise style.

An Impromptu dialogue between Ina May Gaskin and BOLD founder Karen Brody
