God is the madwoman in the attic.
I'm camped out on the threshold with my journal, camera, and plenty of snacks.

women's experience of "otherness"....

for years and years I was thinking about and reading about and writing about... women's "otherness" - spirituality, religion, relationships, health, literature, vocabulary, fat-ness & fitness, history & her-story, equal pay & child care, mothers & daughters, on and on...

I approached God through the metaphor of madness - a exponential and powerful otherness.

and now.
my son.
DNA coded for otherness.

what have I really learned about otherness?
how will I mobilize that knowledge into relationship, proximity, knowing him?
advocating for him?
Seeing him.
