Three and a half years ago, my son Matteo was born. I had just left behind a private practice and full teaching schedule in San Francisco to care for him at our new home, by the sea in the woods of West Marin. Being a mother has been wondrous, arduous, gorgeous, most natural and yet so strange… My sense of self (and self-care) has been lost, found, transformed and renewed. As 2016 begins to unfurl, Currents & Wings is where I’ll be posting thoughts and images from a creative, contemplative life. Sending out my warmest wishes for an inspired new year!
