We believe a calling like mothering, which haphazardly blends the transcendent with the tedious, warrants a little extra oracular guidance (see The Deck) and a deep well of inspiration. On Friday, we invoke the muse of motherhood be she poet, artist, dancer, musician, thinker, or dreamer. Wishing you all an inspired weekend!

That lets the spirit rise up and wear
Its favorite costume of
Mirth and laughter.
When the mind is consumed with
Something divine happens to the
shapes the hand and tongue
And eye into
