The Mothering Voice.

Since my beloved daughter has come into the world I have found – much to my surprise –  new sounds emanating from my vocal chords; comforting, cooing sounds. Mothering sounds.

There are a couple of birds nesting in our back yard. They too have a range of sounds that are reserved for their young and no one else.

It’s a lovely thing.
