Mother Tongue’s third issue of their biannual print magazine is still warm to the touch; it is that hot off the press. Inside? A continued exploration of the complexities of motherhood, and the identities and roles it inevitably uproots in its wake. The magazine, founded by friends Melissa Goldstein and Natalia Rachlin, is told through a visual language that is less concerned with polished aesthetic, but rather resonance and connection. In the wide abyss of parenting tips and women’s interest magazines, Mother Tongue offers refreshment — a slower way of wading through cultural, political, and societal topics through the nuanced eyes of motherhood, womanhood, and yes, even girlhood.
Four years ago, I bought a pair of cream cotton pants, that nowadays, never see beyond my bottom dresser drawer. Two years ago, my brother got down on one knee for his high school sweetheart, at her favorite dog park. A few weeks ago, I was rummaging through old boxes of winter vegetables and found a shriveled sweet potato, harvested last September, perfect to carve into a stamp. This is a rough timeline as to how I ended up at the Indianapolis 500, intensely hungover, wearing a pair of shorts I made with a rotten potato and a fanny pack embellished with glittery, gold letters, “SHOT QUEEN.”
