Welcome to Motherhood

"When she becomes a mother, it is as if a woman must go deep in the bowels of the earth, back to the elemental emotions and the power which makes life possible, losing herself in the darkness. She is like Eurydice in the Underworld. She is pulled away from a world of choices, plans and schedules, where time is kept, spaces cleared, commitments made, and goals attained , to the warm chaos of love, confusion, longing, anger, self-surrender and intense pleasure that motherhood entails."
