child birth and menstruation*

June 12, 2009 Drafts

i was meditating last night and something very interesting occurred to me.  Child birth is rather like having a very large, very painful,  living menstrual* period.   OBVIOUSLY I have never had a romantic relationship with a male human so I have no idea what pregnancy or child birth is.  HOWEVER, i assure you dear readers, I have had many monthly ruby visitors.

Observe here, a scientific drawing of a uterus full of menstrual* blood:

Beautiful no?  It sort of reminds me of that delightful Alien from the silver screen, E.T.  Actually, i think i may get this tattooed across my lower back.   Back the issue at hand. When an infant is born, they are covered in blood and tissue, as well as full of blood tissue.   What I am driving at is that we each are same as any menstrual cycle you might have through the course of your life, except we end up living.  This serves as a stern reminder to all of us to take or menstrual cycles more seriously, and remember to be filled with reverie and the beautiful loss that occurs each month.

*apologies to my readership for my usage of the word menstruation, i felt i should be scientifically precise in this conversation
