I often wondered where "my place" was among the rest of the world.
A walking paradox of modern feminist views often pulled forcefully to a place grounded in nature. The lure of being different contrasting with the desire to be so like everyone else.
I feel most at home when I'm with women -- perhaps its my sisters, the relationship we have with our mother, the sense of needed camaraderie we felt growing up that has led me here.
Here. To a place were my desire to inform is as strong as my desire to hold the space, letting everyone know they are normal. Life is normal. Birth is normal. And so is the end.
