A wonderfully layered story with so much to unpack, but at its core is the question what makes someone a mother?

Federico García Lorca
“Only mystery allows us to live, only mystery.”
Federico García Lorca

Joan Didion
“We tell ourselves stories in order to live...We look for the sermon in the suicide, for the social or moral lesson in the murder of five. We interpret what we see, select the most workable of the multiple choices. We live entirely, especially if we are writers, by the imposition of a narrative line upon disparate images, by the "ideas" with which we have learned to freeze the shifting phantasmagoria which is our actual experience.”
Joan Didion, The White Album

Shirley Jackson
“My name is Mary Katherine Blackwood. I am eighteen years old, and I live with my sister Constance. I have often thought that with any luck at all, I could have been born a werewolf, because the two middle fingers on both my hands are the same length, but I have had to be content with what I had. I dislike washing myself, and dogs, and noise. I like my sister Constance, and Richard Plantagenet, and Amanita phalloides, the death-cup mushroom. Everyone else in our family is dead.”
Shirley Jackson, We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Federico García Lorca
“Look at the longing, the anguish of a sad fossil world / that cannot find the accent of its first sob.”
Federico García Lorca
