My Stories at Medium.com

Medium.com is an open platform, meaning anyone can post there (and a lot of people do, including President Obama). Thus, the stories I post on Medium are not solicited or chosen by editors; they're just my own thoughts about life and the mad world we share. All my Medium stories are posted here:

https://leahwelborn.medium.com/

and links to each story are below.

If you enjoy them, I'd be honored if you subscribe to my stories there,

 "clap" for any stories you read, or even comment & share on your own social media.

It's free, and it's a great way for my stories to get seen by more people.

Thank you.
