Just READING about your yoga class made my heart rate slow down a bit... glad you take time out for you. Beautiful writing as always.

You are just so good with the words! Love every bit of this, and even more now that I've met the whole clan. <3


"It sounds almost lovely - untethering. It's so much like what my teenagers are doing within the family. It sounds good, and it's clearly the right thing to do, but the reality is shockingly painful and dangerous. " My, oh my, you take my breath away when you describe motherhood.


And a blizzard of aptly described emotions from you... your gift with words always amazes me. So beautiful. from untethering, to your utterly BRILLIANT explanation of why mom goes to yoga to warming your husband when he gets home.

So how is the girl that had surgery? Said a little prayer for her tonite. And for y'all - not sure how close those winter storms are or were to you!


I'm so glad you take time for you, a lesson many women, myself included, need to learn. Enjoy your storm. :)

  • I discovered a long time ago that writing of the small things of the day, the trivial matters of the heart, the inconsequential but near things of this living, was the only kind of creative work which I could accomplish with any sincerity or grace. - E.B. White

  • I felt that I was packaging something as delicately pervasive as smoke, one box after another, in that room, where my only duty was to describe reality as it had come to me – to give the mundane its beautiful due. -John Updike
