I Dream of the Silk That Is Tangled Inside You

metaquotes

garrity on motherhood as a college professor, & feeling stranded even among her peers:

I feel like I'm from another planet. A planet where the aliens engage in careful 24/7 attention to the needs of thier small, weak, soft offspring; where there is a demographic spectrum of the entire lifespan, rather than two nodal age groups; where it's possible for the dominant sentients to use their brains for more than thirty seconds at a time.

I think I'll stick to the role of tourist, thanks. I have no interest in going native.
