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!

I’m paraphrasing from Louie Schwartzberg. People say three words when they see his time lapse nature photography. “Oh my God.” Oh=presence. My=a connection to a place deep inside of you. God=inspiration+connection to something much greater than ourselves. I cried when I watched this. Give yourself these 10 minutes TODAY. You will be grateful you did. :)

And this second video is a bonus. Yesterday, while planting in the garden, we watched two yellow swallowtails dance in and around the purple Penstemon.
