"There was a danger . . . [i]t was the danger of seeing my life through other eyes than my own. Seeing it as an ever-increasing roll of words like barbed wire, intricate, bewildering, uncomforting--set against the rich productions, the food, flowers, and knitted garments, of other women's domesticity."
--from "Family Furnishings" in Hateship, Friendship, Courtship, Loveship, Marriage, by Alice Munro
It doesn't have to be specific to women, of course; let's say, bringing home the bacon.
