In this journal we look at mothers without boundaries. In the case of Tamar this means seducing her father-in-law to escape her status as a black widow and social pariah. Yes, that is a story in the bible.

For others this means saying how they really feel about motherhood through song and art.

Enjoy.

MOTHERS WITHOUT BOUNDARIES

24 And it came to pass about three months after, that it was told Judah, saying: 'Tamar thy daughter-in-law hath played the harlot; and moreover, behold, she is with child by harlotry.' And Judah said: 'Bring her forth, and let her be burnt.'

Genesis, Chapter 38
