This is a beautiful and almost poetic piece giving voice to the feeling of overwhelm and responsibility that can come with the roles placed on women. The challenge of ageing and parenting older children while still being a daughter and wanting nothing more than to let it all go. I think this is a deeply personal piece that so many women will resonate with and identify with. You speak to a sensation that so many of us have felt in a truly beautiful and gentle but emotive way.
