Rebirthing Time

Here I sit, almost 16 months after the birth of my child, Ivan.  (To read the back story of how Ivan came into my awareness and then into my life, visit the “About Riza” page.)  The process of becoming a mother has been one full of discovery, challenges, surprises, and new-found commitment.  Time and my…
