“If an individual of a species has undesirable traits they are endangered, according to Charles Darwin’s theory . . . In theory stressed-out nurturers would “die out” due to physiological malfunctioning and unappealing traits . . . Thus the stressed nurturer is endangered and I being a stressed nurturer definitly felt endangered.”

“My motherhood melodies are variations on a theme of my own experiences and what I learned from my mother, mother-in-law and grandmothers.”

“Fatherhood is like an oak tree, its roots running deep and connecting to everything around it; and its branches reaching up and out a little more each year it grows.”

“Our lives flow like great rivers.  Sometimes they flow fast and furious, others are slow and peaceful.  We tumble over waterfalls and splash upon hard rocks which smooth and define us.  We carve out our own trail in the landscape among the inhabitants of earth.”
