don't you wish?..

...that as a teenage girl you could have viewed a maxi-pad like a symbol of creation?

...that in pre-puberty a woman you trusted would have told you that your period was a powerful initiation into womanhood and called it something like "moon time" instead?

...i do.

Kudos to Esther, for having the courage to tell her story with such dedication. We thank you, sweet sister.

I'm very proud that my mom, as freaky and southern as she can be sometimes, was adamant about the period being a good thing - that it was a natural cleansing process for my body preparing itself for fertility.
