When you parent you fall in love with a person who is always changing into someone else, and whom you know will leave you. Yet most parents will say that they have never given themselves to anyone as fully as they have to their children. Parenting is a career with the crazy-making job requirement of simultaneously surrendering to and letting go of someone you love, over and over and over again. More

Planting Seeds of Well-Being
The days have been getting longer, more light hinting of spring's approach until it’s 7:00 p.m. and still light out. The nose detects spring, often before the eyes. Even with snow still on the ground it’s possible to smell the shift happening. The scent is watery, plantish, earthy.
