It has happened. I have been in a cocoon, myself acting as a cocoon, birthing and raising children. I took care to stay quiet and focused on the importance of what I embarked on. No life-altering, profound experience more than becoming a mother.
But it happened. I knew the day I gave birth to my son that things had begun to shift for me. That in bringing him into this world, I brought myself back as well. I reunited all the various parts of me – mother, artist, activist… – to stand in what is fully me today. All of the roles I play make up all of me and none of me.
So it has happened…with new visions, new work, new art to create, I am here. I’m happy we are meeting again.
