I had the great joy of curating a folio on the topic of mothering grown children for one of my favorite journals, Mom Egg Review. Here, you can read my introduction to the project, and from there follow each author, Maria Benet, Jacqueline Doyle, Rebecca Foust, Linda Michel-Cassidy, Stephanie Noble, Daye Phillippo, Dorothy Rice, and Angela Narciso Torres to her contribution, ending with mine.
The wonderful picture here accompanies Linda-Michel Cassidy's nonfiction piece, "We Want to See the Sun on Our Faces." Which begins like this: In the picture, we wear caftans and eclipse glasses. My daughter towers over me, a fact I forget until I see it documented. We look like celestial beings, not because we are heavenly or even good in the traditional sense, but because of the light.
