tribal longing

I just finished reading No Kidding: Women Writers on Bypassing Parenthood and thoroughly enjoyed it. Review here:

It was such a great feeling to read an entire book of essays by smart, funny, adventurous women about not becoming a mother. The only comparable experience is the Gateway Women forum.

The women are all writers and, of course, live in New York and Los Angeles. Le sigh. Perhaps my leaving L.A. will turn out to be a grand mistake.

Naturally I related the most to the childless-by-circumstance essays; there were several standouts for me. I’ll offer up a few choice quotes soon. Internet access has been spotty.
