If you've noticed, I have a video called "Create" at the top of my blog. It was not specifically meant for birth. But, me being who I am, I immediately thought of becoming a mom and the role we play in creating. It speaks of the beauty of our bodies and our souls...and how we can have a great capacity to create. When I saw this, I thought of us as women and how we create little bodies inside of us, that grow and become as we nourish them for the first nine months of their lives.
I also think of the connection we create with them while we wait for them to come. So often, we become anxious for the time to come when we are able to hold them in our arms, and don't cherish the early opportunities to create this connection. I remember one time specifically singing to my first little one when I was still pregnant. I remember how that helped me to feel connected to her in a way that nothing else would have. There are so many ways to form that connection and I think it is so important to do so. The arts offer a great way for us to do this. Music, painting, writing...all these things offer us a way to create that connection before our babies even come.
I would encourage all to reach out and find ways, as a mother, to create.
I have also added new art to the gallery, so take a look.
