I cannot say what

...ignites within a woman after

  she gives birth...


but, it is a beautiful development that never ceases to amaze. I have always loved the miracle of life, but it wasn't until my last birth that I felt the calling to midwifery.

The mystery of birth

   ...fascinating, and the joy

of being part of this mystery,

       well ...


"The artist's job, I think, is to be a conduit for mystery. To intuit it, and recognize that the story-germ has some inherent mystery in it, and sort of midwife that mystery into a story in such a way that is isn't damaged in the process, and may even get heightened or refined."
