Margaret Wade and Suzanne Blackburn

Reclaiming ErosI grew up in a Catholic family that was very service oriented, very “other” conscious. My father was a lawyer who gave half of his time providing free service for the unprivileged and folks in trouble, so early on, I got this idea of service and connectedness to others. I was a very religious, I would say ecstatic, boy. Something my father and my grandmother instilled in me was a sense of awe and a love of nature.
