Audrey

It was an extraordinarily hot summer, even for us here in the tropics. So naturally, there had to be a deluge on the day of our shoot. It turned out wonderful, with Audrey so luminous against the rain, eating Shakey’s pizza and contemplating names for her firstborn. I worked with the always amazing Monique Jaramillo-Señeres here, and many times during the day we’d forget that this dainty little creature here, so exquisite and tiny and radiant, was seven months pregnant.

Here’s a toast to the rainy season, the first days of class, and to mothers all around the world.

There is a secret in our culture,

and it’s not that childbirth is painful,
it’s that women are strong.

Love, love,

I have hung our cave with roses,
With soft rugs,

The last of Victoriana.
Let the stars
Plummet to their dark address,

Let the mercuric
Atoms that cripple drip
Into the terrible well,

You are the one
Solid the spaces lean on, envious.

Sylvia Plath, Ariel

Oh, what strange wonderful clocks women are. They nest in Time. They make flesh that holds fast and binds eternity.

I could not get my fill of looking.
There should be a song for women to sing at this moment or a prayer to recite. But perhaps there is none because there are no words strong enough to name that moment.
Anita Diamant, The Red Tent

Love falls in love with love;
comes like an echo sounding back,
searches its mirrored shadow
within a look.
