Melissa Etheridge performed at the Grammy’s on Sunday night, with her bald head exposed to the world. She has just completed chemotherapy for breast cancer. If she can bare her bald head on national television, I can surely share mine with family and friends on this blog. I have shared just about everything in this forum — I might as well display the most visible sign of cancer and chemotherapy.
Apparently, Melissa Etheridge’s appearance has inspired women all over to proudly show their bald heads. It inspired me too. But I think I’ll limit my baldness to this site and to the privacy of my own home. I’ll stick with straight and curly for my more public moments.
