One of the very best things about the Internet is the people. I recently got an email from Kim Gutschow, mama to extremely premature twins, and also film-maker, writer and medical anthropologist, from buddist mama. I’ve added Kim’s book, Being a Buddhist Nun: The Struggle for Enlightenment in the Himalayas (Harvard University Press, 2004) to my list of must-reads, and she’s currently working on a new project about the crisis in obstetrics in the US and rural India. I love reading about women from all walks of life, all over the world, especially mothers.
Thanks for getting in touch, Kim!
