Carrying the Boat
Carrying the Boat (2018) by Janis Mars Wunderlich – As my children have grown, I’ve observed their eagerness to move beyond the safety of my boat. Their radius is expanding, and they begin to swim towards currents of their own choosing. Motherhood continues to carry me along a confluent flow of unexpected twists and rapids. I just continue to hang on tight and breathe in every vivid, delicious moment.
