Dear Rose and Bella, today is my first empty nest Mother’s Day, and your Dad and I are making dinner for our mothers. We will give them each a plant, and hope to convey our love, again, and only a little self-consciously because it feels like we are conforming to a social dictate, yet all the while sincere…
But my favorite part of Mother’s Day is how deeply grateful and fulfilled I feel when I think of each of you. I have LOVED being your mother… more than words can say. When I think of you, I feel a flutter of warmth within me- as if I am in love, and, you know, I am. Your very existence gives me joy. Sometimes I’d like to shrink you back down into those darling little bodies still living under our roof…. but then I don’t want to miss any of the all of you right now, just as you are: lovely and loving young women who are coming into their own.
We always told each other to savor the days, and I only wish I’d savored them even more. I suppose, with this letter, I am. How time has flown! How gifted I feel. My heart if full, today and every day, & I love you. xx, mom

(I have always sensed, and I believe Jonah does as well, that we are two souls who are enjoying the experience of having this life together… this poem speaks to that intuition…)
Lovers in the Kitchen
We are living in the radiance, you and I.
We maneuver around each other’s bodies,
making soup in our little kitchen,
passing the cooking ware, the spices.
Our living is a dance.
Light spills off our elbows, our fingertips.
It hovers around our temples.
We know the spaciousness we’ve come from,
to which we will return.
on the surface of the ocean,
we rise up, joyful, subside.
We never speak of this
yet we know well what we are.
~Ingrid Goff-Maidoff, Winter 2016

THERE’S A GIFT BAG SPECIAL GOING ON… 2 for $50……!!!
I was minding my own business this week when an enchanting little book of soul questions asked to be created. Oh it’s such a treasure! I put it in my pocket and carried it out on my walks and had to keep stopping to read it again and again. At 1 1/4 inches by 2, it’s a delight for those of us who know good things come in small packages. It brims with beautiful questions that lead us back to the soul.
There are 32 tiny pages, with 40 questions in all.
These are delightful writing prompts… invitations for inquiry… conversation starters…
Each page offers a powerful invitation and transmission…
I’ve sewn the book with gold thread and left a loop so it could be hung as an ornament,
or even worn on a chain as a conversation starting pendant.
