Dear Edward: 

These pictures, you say, “make us feel as if we're in the midst of the natural environment instead of standing above it or at a distance
from it, detached from it.” Birth cleaves us from Nature: every pregnant woman is Mother Nature, the Great Goddess; postpartum, we
begin the journey to what makes us unique. While along with other organisms we are born into a reality, only we die into a mythology.
