The making of a woman

Tonight I was reading Luca a book called “Green Tales” by Beatrice Tanaka, a collection of creation stories from indigenous cultures around the world.

This comes from a Maori tale:
“He looked at the reddish clay at his feet and called his immortal siblings. Together they shaped a being in the likeness of their mother, with a hill-like, rounded body, with a river-like flowing hair and eyes deep as mountain lakes, an earthen likeness.”

So as we are assaulted with the imagery of social media, advertising, etc…of what the “ideal” woman LOOKS like, let’s remember one version of how we were created, and what we could FEEL like.
