Probably the most liberating part of leaving home was that it gave space to my unconscious. It was my unconscious—rambunctious, repressed, and a little scary—that kept leading me back to self, which in turn led me to the man who became my husband, to women who are still my friends to this day, to aspects of my being that had been deeply buried.

Lacunae: Elegy For My Mother will be serialized over five parts, weekly, on MUTHA Magazine. Read the first chapters here and follow MUTHA for future installments.
