This is a story that is unfolding right now. It’s a story of journey, of divergence and convergence, of intimate connection, of power and loss of control. It’s a story with a messy plotline and lacking a conclusion. This story starts right now and will take us from sea level to 10,000’. It’s gDiapers on location.
