I search for other writers, tellers of story that envelope me, take me elsewhere, inspire me to think, feel, and most of all remember.
Today I found Ani King on Sixpenny & Co. Her piece Music Our Mothers Made reminded me of many things, ways in which I used to live my life, the crazed adventure of any given day, and how I thought of little else.
I’m very much so a “careful mother” now, though I wouldn’t say motherhood is what brought on my carefulness. Too much adventure can have the same affect as well.
My mother on the other hand was not as adventurous as I was, which is probably for the better, considering the stories that populate my past.
For my two young boys that are new to this world and definitely have wolf tendencies, I can only hope that their adventures and wildness add to their lives rather than deplete them.
Though all experiences, regardless of how they are categorized, add flavor and color to our stories, for hindsight offers distance and wisdom. If we survive, right? (Oh, the humor of experience!)
If you get a chance, check out her piece. Music Our Mothers Made is not long, easily consumed in a few minutes, and well worth your time.You’re always welcome to comment, voice your thoughts on her piece or anything else.
