When I practiced as a midwife I realized:Hey! We are ALL born naked and upside down! I have been circling the globe for thirty years with my four children in tow. I see the world through the eyes of a child- my children, other people’s children. That we humans see difference and fight with each other is ludicrous. How could we pretend that we are not all equal in worth and value? But then my life has also been one where I have been devalued, marginalized, discriminated against, pushed out because I am a woman of color, outspoken, nonconforming to the mainstream hegemonic values. Now I am dedicating my life (by studying for a PhD in Environmental Studies) to repairing the horribly damaged relationship between humans and Nature. I don’t have time to worry about whether people approve of me.
