Hey — Maybe you’ve received this before, but I was listening to Ani Difranco’s spoken word piece, _My IQ_ off of her _Puddle Dive_ CD. In it, she says: “I’ve got highways for stretchmarks, so I can see where I’ve grown.” I like that a lot. I’ve been lamenting my non-baby induced stretchmarks of late, but I like the idea that those lines mark more than physical growth. I imagine, after having a child, I will feel my stretchmarks demonstrate tremendous personal and emotional growth.
Thanks for keeping up this blog. — Cora D in Portland
