elisa: "mommy, when i grow up i want to be an artist like you"
me: "baby girl, you already are an artist"
i was reading this very powerful manifesto that really resonated with me, from a very talented and spiritual squammie sister, and it just gave me goosebumps all over when i read this particular piece:
"i have faith that my creative babies know how to birth themselves, that i am the carrier and the nurturer, but ultimately they have a life of their own to live, and i must give it to them"
it only took me almost 35 years to finally figure out what it is i truly want to be doing with my life. i vow to help nurture and listen to my creative babies and act as a vehicle to help them birth themselves and their own purpose in life.
it's a beautiful thing.
