Lorraine Myers about this book: This book reflects our lives from birth to present with a stark reflection on how our biological attachment via the umbilical cord plays a major role throughout our lives. We are never really separated from that initial union. The phrase "cutting the umbilical cord" is used metaphorically to describe a child's breaking away from the parental home. In speaking with many friends and associates whose mothers have passed away, and my experiences in losing my mom in 1996, I find the grieving process is different for each of us. My grieving process is still heartbreaking, as if mom died yesterday. This has been a learning experience for me. I just celebrated my 70th birthday and am now facing a stark reality. For the rest of my life, I am still attached, and am continuously seeking the pulsation of the safe warm place where I began. The nurturing provided was not just blood supply, oxygen and nutrient; it was my entire lifeline. In reality, the eternal attachment I feel is from the heart. All readers should read the chapter on Miss Pearl, a childhood neighbor who was in a coma for 2 weeks and described her experience.
