Now I Know Why

Now I know why people worship, carry around
magic emblems, wake up talking dreams
they teach their children: the world speaks.
The world speaks everything to us.

-William Stafford

This marks my mother's passing - 88 years of a rich, full life. I'll miss her, as I carry forward all the talking dreams she taught me.

she must have been a wonderful woman to raise such a grounded, compassionate soul. Peace and blessings to your family at this time of remembrance.
