According to myth, Semele gave birth to a baby who became a god. Her story is a parable for all mothers.
As moms, our job is to create greatness out of the ordinary. Our lives are both ordinary and extraordinary. We are occupied with the mundane, but our hearts are occupied with wonder. To inhabit the world of children is to inhabit a world of magic, of transformations, of limitless potential, of dreams, and of delight. Welcome, companions. Welcome, friends.
Come, come whoever you are:
Wanderer, Worshiper, lover of leaving;
Come though you have broken your vow a thousand times before;
Ours is no caravan of despair
Come, yet again, come.
Occasionally I actually have time to commit a design to writing. You’ll find those efforts here.
