Molly’s Diary: Independence Day 2008

I try to think about freedom, shifting my mind to ideas about rights and liberties. But freedom won’t stay framed that way in my mind today, no matter how I try. Freedom keeps telling me it is separation and solitude. Independence tells me it is isolation.

I want a celebration of the kind of bondage, the tight and complex network of ties, that I want so profoundly to make real. I want to celebrate connections instead of independence, needs instead of freedom.

I want to be tied, firmly, to my lovers, together, indivisible, one household, with liberty and justice for all.
