PICA Day 24
Have had a bit of a rough day. Received an email from Sue of my Elena with a huge butterfly landed on her little 4 year old nose. I miss her and Felix terribly. Having my babies living on the other side of the planet while doing an exploration of care feels horrifyingly perverse. Very visceral and harsh realisation of interspecies difference - I would give up the care of these organisms and even my own cat in a second to care for my human babies.
Louie came in without her four foster children and we talked for a long time about caring for children that aren’t your biological offspring and the challenges of our institutional relationships.
