The Women of the World

The women in our lives are the women in our bones

We’ve known them for millennia because they birthed us, bathed us, launched us, and held us through all of our transitions

We love them in profound ways because we are them

We are their bones, their tears, their joys

We are the flesh of them; the air in them; the particles of their past and present

The women of the world are the visible and invisible powers that bind it all together

Cheers to all the women of the world–may we continue to lift each other up, in this lifetime and beyond
