Spring has brought me a new place to dream!
"So I wrote this, a poem of the end of one such circle—meeting the beginning of another."

Spring means change and hope and everything wonderful, for a moment, right here.

The Tattoo of Spring.

On my mat, I’m all alone, like on a deserted island, while simultaneously being connected to the larger theme of life that makes anything coming up on a “post-baby-body Google search” a complete waste of time.

"Because when we open our hearts to another’s wounds, we also expose ourselves to their damage. On the other hand, in true relationships—deep, meaningful connections—we cannot expect to receive and hold space with only the good."

You know what? Romance is over-rated. There, I said it.

Oh, this one is so, so close to my heart. For all of you other nap keepers:

"Not every young mother out there has family close by—this is one real “dilemma” of modern, American society. This means we don’t have Nanas over every day to keep company or lend us an ear or a hand to be held, while reminding that, “This too shall pass, dear.”"

This was hard for me to write---it's written from where I currently reside, in Babyland. And I actually loathe parenting advice. Why? Because we know our kids best. That said, welcoming a new baby into our hearts---and especially into my oldest daughter's---was more important than I can currently convey through words. And these are the top three things that, I think, helped us grow closet as a family unit.

In this world of over-sharing and click-bait crap, we, as deliberate writers need to remember...Not Everything Needs to Be Published.

Sometimes there is no real closure; no perfect savasana.

"If we cannot be kind and gracious with ourselves, how can we be these fragile things with the rest of the gently waiting world?"

Sometimes being a new mom reminds me deeply of my own strength and, more often, my fragility; worn barely beneath the surface, always reminding me to be kind (and to myself too).
