20060129 – C-section scar

Sadalit, the subject and creator of this photo sent me a link to it and also to this one.
Not only is the photograph beautifully composed, but it strikes me as nothing short of amazing how miraculous the human body is. The skin has smoothly sealed the place where her child first entered this world, leaving a road path to show where, but quite subtle in the grand event of birth. Just a little line.
Of course to a woman who has a cesarean scar, it surely feels like a lot more than a little line.
Thank you, Sadalit.
