Storyboard Text

  • Guilt changes nothing
  • She was a child of anxious, not proud, love. We were poor and could not afford for her the soil of easy growth. I was a young mother, I was a distracted mother.
  • Acceptance heals wounds
  • Let her be. So all that is in her will not bloom-but in how many does it? There is still enough left to live by. Only help her to know-help make it so there is cause for her to know-that she is more than this dress on the ironing board. helpless before the iron.
  • "She would call for me, and I would rouse from exhaustion to sleepily call back: 'You're all right, darling, go back to sleep, it's just a dream.'"
  • Motherhood requires patience
  • "Or I will become engulfed with all I did or did not do, with what should have been and what cannot be helped."
  • "Mother, I did it. I won, I won: they gave me first prize; they clapped and clapped and wouldn't let me go," Now suddenly she was Somebody, and as imprisoned in her difference as she had been in anonymity."
  • "I used to try to hold and love her after she came back home, but her body would stay stiff, and after awhile she'd push away."
