The Perfection of the Morning

January 7, 2012 § 1 Comment

“As I read and wrote and dreamt, it began to seem clear to me that all our women’s lives in this century were false to the extent that we had only one model for life and it was the one devised by males for us, and that we were lost and twisted and at sea and would not find our own strength, the rightness of our lives, and the beauty of our womanliness until we found out who, in our deepest female essence, we are.

We haven’t yet told the truth about our lives. Until we tell the truth out loud, no matter how humiliating or painful or at variance with society’s version, we will not come to know what we are, what is truly our world of experience…

I began to believe I had to write out of that deep, abandoned, forgotten, ignored and discredited place in myself”
