I am:

[tweetmeme] crazy grateful for the freedom to create my life and my body’s ability to grow and birth babies.

wishing the whole time we are talking that I could somehow get inside of your head and see the world, your life, this circumstance, our interaction – the exact same way you do – just for a moment. in love with the textures, angles, essentials and earthy details of human relationship.
