women and their secrets

i found this picture of me breastfeeding in the hospital- such a strange time. i think this was probably the loneliest i've ever been. no one tells you how difficult it's going to be. well, anyway- i think this picture is art actually- for lots of reasons. look how hard i'm trying. i didn't know what was happening- i was entirely out of my body. people think sad stories are unacceptable in some way- perhaps it has to do with pulling your socks up, or not taking things too seriously. i don't know, drama right. but this was a sad story. and that's not to say that happiness didn't come from it. but all i really remember is how alone i felt, in all of it. women and their secrets.


  1. It's a shame that you ever felt that way, especially when you'd just had a child. I hope you are never feel that way again. X

  2. Lucky you, Emma! Having your baby... wow!... you were not alone... not at all... Holding in your arms the most wonderful gift, the greatest treasure in this life... I don't mind if the picture is "art" or not... It is utterly beautiful, sweet and touching...
    I wish you well. Much love for you both... Specially for the baby!.. Take care, Luz ;-)
