The other day, Mane was sitting with Vespera and I and my cousin while we were working on Vespera's homework project (a jacket made entirely of paper, using nothing but paper to hold it all together). She [Mane] plopped down next to me and asked,

"Do you ever have questions, but you don't really know what they are? You just know they're about life."

Why yes. I have those kinds of questions all the time. Thanks for asking.


  1. Wow. That was PROFOUND for a little girl.

  2. wow. you are obviously raising a child similar to the one living under my roof! can you believe some of the questions? when i am having my hardest moments with ella (hard beyond belief), i remind myself of how the traits that are THE. MOST. DIFFICULT. in her now, are the ones that can be cultivated in such a way that they are her most admirable traits as a woman. wow...i sort of got off on a rabbit trail there, huh? anyway...obviously, your post connected with both my experience, AND my own deepest thoughts and questions. LOL.


It's always good to hear from you!
