While I learned of her voice through "Lemonade", I'd suggest that Beyonce could not have included a better creator than Shire to include and give true depth of connection to her video.
It may be obvious that some of the pieces do not seem to have been churned and refined over time; but each piece seems to form a chain to create this formidable tapestry.
Because of its apparent sincerity in the writer’s intention to share her thoughts, Teaching My Mother How To Give Birth may well be a book of instruction. On self scrutiny and unconditional self acceptance.
