Voices from the Well

The story of my journey across the world collecting stories from women who love women



Five Women from Four Continents

It looked for a short while like my journey had stalled – work commitments and extensive travel mean time has been in short supply in recent months and I was beginning to feel like Voices From the Well was more of a fantasy project – an ideal – than something that could take off and thrive in the real world. Then I met five women who shared their stories with me and reminded me why I am doing this.

Her son was born to her partner late last year and he has literally taken over their lives. He is learning new things every day; this past week he has discovered he can communicate by screaming. Continue reading “Emma”
