February Love Affairs
My heart is taken by my grand daughter. She’s toddling now, and learning new words and sounds, making her own songs ,and exploring everything everywhere. You must keep an eye on her every minute. This demands time and attention and in the moment changes of plans. Grandmothering. I’m putting to use everything I’ve ever learned about relationships and childrearing, and ADDING the intentions of my work in the world. It’s all one, really. Being present to life each and every moment. Time speeds and slows. Cycles spin and return again. I’m a toddler revisited, on my knees looking under things, laughing, discovering my self over, all while seeing to the very real needs of this wee being in front of me. Bless us, Grandmother, with your presence your light your loving heart. Renew us again and again.
