Tap into a rich vein of inspiration as we mine motherhood in all its meanings. From mythologies of mother earth to the stories we inherit from our own mothers, the feminine as source and sustenance of life is a powerful notion. Our writers pause to reflect on the many forms motherhood can take, and how they unfold in their work.

Memasuki tahap menjadi inspirasi yang kaya saat kita menirukan masa keibuan dalam semua artinya. Dari mitologi ibu bumi dengan cerita yang kita warisi dari ibu kita sendiri, feminin sebagai sumber dan rezeki kehidupan adalah gagasan yang kuat. Penulis kami berhenti sejenak untuk merenungkan banyak bentuk yang bisa dimiliki oleh keibuan, dan bagaimana hal itu terungkap dalam pekerjaan mereka.
