unbroken thread

Tiny starry dynamo. Hothouse orchid. In the penumbra.

This awesome power and potential that lies between my hipbones… most days I don’t think about it. I stretch, flex, contract, all in an effort to flatten things back out a bit more. I wish I could say that after watching this I’ll never beat myself up about my not-quite-totally-flat belly again, but as a yet non-mommy-person, it certainly puts things in perspective. 

These women, these stories are inspiring. 

To bring it all back to current events, every woman should be proud of her postpartum “battle scars,” that comes with the choice and celebration of conception. (I’m looking at you, Washington. You cognac-and-steak-bellied bastards.)
