The Stone Woman Gives Birth

I have a story to tell you, but it’s a story for which the words have disappeared.

I say we don’t have the language, but that’s not entirely true. We were all there. It’s one of the things that connects us. We can remember it in our bodies. So how could we have ever forgotten?


Uncertainty Club – Special Issue

Joan Sutherland has done three tremendous pieces on the myth we are in. It’s her offering right now. We think it’s valuable, helpful, and important and have decided to run a special issue of Uncertainty Club just for her piece.
