I Love This Bleeding Body

At 45, I want to savor every moment of this power

Blood. I was born in a mucousy bubble of it. The blood that made me, way back when I was an egg within the fetus of my mother in my grandmother’s womb.

Blood toughened me, streaming down my calves every time my knees skidded against gravel or asphalt.
