What Is Found There by Sue B. Walker
narrated by Sue B. Walker
One night after the family had gone to bed under the girders of a causeway bridge to drown themselves in the stark eyes of the moon, and there in the desperation of hard economic times, the little girl said “Is that it then? Are we beside ourselves?” And you sit and think about the puzzle of time passing, of mortality, of human choice—like you want me to answer Jesus of Nazareth, Genghis Khan, and Eva Braun and say Motherhood integrates bio-procreational and social processes.
