Still Impressed

May 12, 2007

Ah, from a little child,
Thou knowest, Soul, how to me all sounds became music;
My mother’s voice, in lullaby or hymn…
-Walt Whitman, Proud Music of The Storm

We knelt together before I was old enough for school and planted marigolds and baby’s tears. I remember thinking, “How could she know so much?” I wonder if Sophia wonders the same thing.

So many years later, I’m still wondering, still loving, still impressed. And I’m guessing there’s more to come.

Happy Mother’s Day Mom.
