Check out this piece by Kara Post-Kennedy on being mothered by “a coven” of good witches and bad. It reminded me so much of my own childhood, how much time I spent with three grandmothers who I came to think of (then, now, and once, in a poem) as my “three fairy godmothers”–each with her own distinctive way of showing me what it means to be a woman, for better and for worse.
