Still Learning To See

Moms

At the age of 72 I know more than ever how much the good health of the world depends on moms, not just the birthing if they have kids, but the lifetime of nurturing kids, g’kids, husbands, communities, the planet.

Men, it is time to change or get out of the way.

My mom, below, would be nearly 110, and still lives on in all of us.

Our family was so fortunate to be cross-pollinated with Liz and her incredible family of women (and men too), present and departed. And, of course, Amy, one of the true gems of North Carolina.
