Laboring Thoughts~~~

With the grace of mysterious timing,
pregnancy ends and birth begins.
We do not understand what starts the dynamic process of labor,
yet the wisdom of two bodies, mother and babe know.

The uterus, strongest muscle in the human body, contracts with absorbing persistence.
In giving herself to the power, birthing woman opens fully, instincts accurate and ancient.
Intensity from this enormous effort stretches consciousness beyond language,
to a borderland marked by relentless emotional and physical sensations.
Doubt that she can do this mighty work,
and determination that ‘Yes’ she will, are both true.

Family and friends give comforting words of encouragement,
and touch her with love. Care providers offer their skill and expertise.
These sustain birthing woman in the
solitary work that only she can do.

Excerpt from Brought to Earth by Birth

    Your photographs are relaly beautiful. The way the light captures everything makes it all so dreamy! My favourite picture in this set has to be where Tracey is laying in the grass with that beautiful necklace on and her shirt open, showing off her amazing pregnant belly. I like it because as much as it is about the pregnancy, it is also capturing a woman in a moment. Her jewels, her thoughts and her baby belly. Really beautiful!!

  6. local bank (multi-state player) has big flashy signs mentioning a free book for kids about math. I ask the teller if I can get two. She tells Me that they have none. Will you get more I ask? She replies She is unsure whether they will get more. I politely suggest perhaps they should take the signs down till they do. She tells Me they are not allowed too. Great.
