“I'm beginning to perceive motherhood as a long, slow letting go, of which birth is just the first step.”
Sandra Steingraber, Having Faith: An Ecologist's Journey to Motherhood

“In the world outside this glass room, songbirds are feeding and resting in the trees. Some will take off tonight and not land until they reach Venezuela. Sandpipers, plovers, and broad-winged hawks have already left for Patagonia and Panama. Bats are headed for caves in Kentucky and Tennessee. Out in the Atlantic, humpback whales pass by on their way to the Caribbean. Even now, Canada geese are honking toward us from Quebec. It is a good day for the beginnings of journeys.
Every time I look at you, I think, Now I cannot die.”
Sandra Steingraber, Having Faith: An Ecologist's Journey to Motherhood

“From the right to know and the duty to inquire flows the obligation to act.”
Sandra Steingraber
