Red Tent Stories

Red Tent Stories was inspired by novel The Red Tent by Anita Diamant and by my own journey from childhood through womanhood.

“The stories from the Red Tent are as varied as the girls and women who occupy it each month. Our lives are reflected upon in the Red Tent. Stories of joy…stories of pain. We explore our fears; we talk about our lives, our loves, our losses, our successes. We nurture each other. We celebrate births, mourn deaths. We pray for peace. We talk about our periods, pregnancies, miscarriages and abortions. Incest. We offer each other our hearts, our souls, a hug, a laugh. We support our mutual woman-ness. We cry…we laugh…we sing…we dance.”
