The world is full of women blindsided by the unceasing demands of motherhood, still flabbergasted by how a job can be terrific and torturous. ~Anna Quindlen

Shot on the corner of Centre and Leonard, in New York, this mother’s face says it all.

Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses
