I think sort of normalizing it in a way. Making women the default in the show as the leads is kind of a nice change. So often it’s males as the default - the male perspective being the default perspective. So I’m very proud of that…and also the queer representation we have on the show and the complexity we allow those characters to have the same way we do the heterosexual characters. To me, those little steps and those stories we can tell are just so important and make me very proud.

I have found that some of the simplest things have given me the most pleasure. They didn’t cost me a lot of money either. They just worked on my senses. Did you ever pick very large blueberries after a summer rain? Walk through a grove of cottonwoods, open like a park, and see the blue sky beyond the shimmering gold of the leaves? Pull on dry woolen socks after you’ve peeled off the wet ones? Come in out of the subzero and shiver yourself warm in front of a wood fire? The world is full of such things.
