Sandi and Debbie Toksvig

I was so very moved by reading Sandi Toksvig’s column in the Guardian this weekend that I wanted to put a link to it here. I was also completely struck by her recollection of meeting Debbie, which has given me renewed faith in this project:

“It was 14 years ago when, on the doorstep of a stranger’s house, I first shook hands with Debbie. We both have the same recollection of the moment. It was as if the world disappeared. It was as much like being hit by lightning as I can imagine. Choice did not come into it. IĀ fell in love. It is a universal condition over which none of us has control.”
