Vulnerability Connection: A Prologue

I had a great conversation the other day (which I may write about later) about how vulnerability is what make radical activism compelling. In so many ways, it is a type of strength I continually fall short of and yet one that I’ve never stopped admiring. Paradoxically, it the single thing I’ve always had the most trouble with and also the most consistent thread that connect all the people and subjects I care most about.

In the next series of posts, I'll attempt to trace some of the contours of my thoughts on vulnerability and draw the connections I see with my attraction to Buddhism, radical political activism, and gender identity.
