Abstract

Jennifer Lunden The story I always told was about the time my mother and I got lost in the woods. But this, I realize now, was not the only story, or the whole story. When I think back on it, I realize that in fact the story I always told was not really the story at all. There was a piece missing. It was the part about what happened when we got to the waterfall, the part about my mother taking out her Minolta and asking me to take off my clothes, to show the camera my just-ripening body. I had not forgotten this piece; I had simply wedged it right out of the story. The part where I said no, but finally, I said yes. It was shortly before my mother left for good. Before she moved to Maine and left my little brother and me in Canada with our dad. She was a photographer now, in this time of the hike and the waterfall. She was finding herself. Her hair was short and permed because she was a feminist. She didn't wear a bra anymore. She went on canoeing trips with other women and they ran
