Taking a break from the current maelstrom by taking a page from Sheila O'Malley. Her expansive post on the women she loves was marvelous. And in this rough time I want to take a moment to celebrate and revel in the women I admire, am enchanted by, who make me laugh, make me think, and make the world a more interesting place. And this is by no means a definitive list.
