What am I? I'm a mother and a wife. I'm also a widow and very independent. I enjoy living simply and absorbing the world. I'm opinionated and thoughtful. I knit and I sew. I also consider myself a feminist. I stand up for the ones who can't do it themselves. I give all of myself to those I love daily. I like to bury my nose in a book but will speed read it in 4 hours. I hate to clean but I hate a mess. I enjoy medicine, psychology, art and people. I think human beings and the human psyche are so very interesting. I have no order to any of this that I am, it all comes out when it wants and where it wants.... and I let it.
"You are a marvel. Each second we live is a new and unique moment of the universe, a moment that will never be again... And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France. When will we also teach them what they are? We should say to each of them: Do you know what you are? You are a marvel. You are unique. In all the years that have passed, there has never been another child like you. Your legs, your arms, your clever fingers, the way you move. You may become Shakespeare, a Michelangelo, a Beethoven. You have the capacity for anything. Yes, you are a marvel. And when you grow up, can you then harm another who is, like you, a marvel? You must work- we all must work- to make the world worthy of its children."
