Quote for Today: Tanya Tagaq

Mystical Face Beauty Woman Root Composing Fantasy

We are our ancestors. The spiritual umbilicus is apparent to all. The dead look upon us with the pure love of a mother’s gaze. But the dead love us even more because of our flawed flesh and eternal confusion. The removal from form allows for total and complete unconditional love. We carry our dead with us like helium balloons. There is no breaking the umbilicus.
Tanya Tagaq, Split Tooth
