How do babies end up in the womb? What is this thread that is attached to the baby? What is your name? Is it for the baby to hold on? And me, how was I born? These and other questions are part of the child’s curiosity. A seed that grows and transforms. A heart that beats. Two arms that embrace the world. Two eyes that open and a song that is heard. It is the string of life, the string that tells your story and ours and that accumulates stories from other lives. This cord has no end.
