Trying Again, Ceil
about the photograph.
We are just beginning to "try again". No small feat of optimism and bravery 6 months after loss, 3 months after turning 43 with no other children. I was lying in bed the other day in a hopefully conception boosting shoulder stand when I noticed the way the light coming through the window seemed to be a ball of light, almost of energy, right between my legs (the center of the body is home to the "conception vessel" in Chinese medical energy pathways) and I snapped a photo. "Signs" like that help me feel like I'm on the right path. -Ceil
about the artist.
Ceil is among other things, a writer who seldom writes and now a mother who doesn't get to mother. She is riding the waves after the loss of her son Kai on his due date, in mid June.
