I am often called a Curator of enchantment. I feel that Enchantment offers, in her very essence, inspriration. It is that serendipitous coming together of the unexpected... a tiny orange mushroom on the forest floor, a circle of young redwood trees forming a cathedral space, a Flash of silk caught by a branch... I believe in Enchantment in her highest form. Not as an escape from reality, but as a window into what is possible in that fertile and complex world or imagination.
I believe there is no greater purpose than that of being a Mother. I’m very proud to say that our 3 daughters have grown into wonderful human beings …my proud contribution to our world. But it’s my 7 granddaughters that cause my heart to swell with pride. Mothering is hard work, but a Grandmother’s job is purely to love, support, acknowledge and gently guide, without any of the heavy lifting that is demanded of a Mother. Blessings Abound…. in the form of 7 granddaughters.
I fell in love when I was 15 yr old. He was 18 yr. He saw a photo and declared, “that is the girl I am going to marry!”
We’ve been married 56 years now. Perhaps it’s a past life connection….who knows….but this life time has been quite a ride !
He’s now 81 yr old and still my Prince.
