There remain a few tenacious taboos for women artists. Motherhood and children are generally frowned upon as content. Birth itself is an extreme no no, especially if one admits that the experience can be traumatic and fundamentally destabilizing.  Yet, a mother emerges from the ashes: more vulnerable and powerful and passionate than ever. I had no idea I could love so fiercely.  I remember being with my children at a rec-center toddler time and overhearing a mother say: “Sleep is an option. Beauty is short-lived. But LOVE is greater than fear.”
