from ‘Ahab’s Wife’

March 20, 2010

“If you meet a woman of whatever complexion who sails her life with strength and grace and assurance, talk to her! And what you will find is that there has been a suffering, that at some time she has left herself for hanging dead.”



  1. for those of you who might have read this and thought ‘oh dear…’… I may have thought a few days ago that I had left myself ‘hanging dead’ – but I realised today that I am there for myself and I have found a strength I never knew I had…

  2. I thought of myself and the last few years and how I have come through what I never thought I could. It made my heart ache and sing.
