To Study Our Daughters

4 Sep

To study my daughter is to see myself more clearly.

I rode that same tractor as a child

kids on tractor 066 (2)2

Ran from it and all that it represented

Me

kids on tractor 066 (2)3

And now I am back home

To nurture her in the same nest

Under the same sun

Tapping into the same roots

To stand back and watch her grow

kids on tractor 066

In awe

    Love it……..No matter how far we run we always seem to make a circle and come back home.
