This is a place where I hope you see yourself. Your real Mama self. The self who adores her little ones and is awe of everything about them, the self who cries sometimes from the frustration of being on 24/7, the self who misses her waist, and the self who creates and laughs and is loving more deeply than she ever could have imagined. This is a spirited space for all things Mama. You might see an essay here or a poem, or a song, or a recipe, or an interview, or a video clip. Anything that might inspire, affirm, support you could be here. (And if it isn’t just let me know.)
And who am I?
I am Mariahadessa Ekere Tallie and I live in NYC. I’m a mother of two girls ages 6 and 4. I run parental education workshops and creative writing circles for pregnant women and new moms. I also study herbs, write poetry, teach part-time, and dream full-time of a world where Mamas are appreciated and seen. Welcome to that world.
