Growing Something Good

For much of my adult life I’ve worked, with varying degrees of success, at growing what some call a ‘Nurturing Parent’ as a substantial part of me. Lately, I’ve had some progress on that front. And all year I’ve greatly enjoyed glimpsing Lucy Barton’s somewhat similar journey in Elizabeth Strout’s Amgash series.

Anyway, here’s what came to me as I walked in the woods this morning:

My good Mommie holds
Me now, snug as a bug in
A rug. Strong, warm arms.
