When I was in high school, my mom gave me this magnet. It has lived everywhere I have lived.
If there was already a path
it would have to be someone else’s;
the whole point
is to find your own way.
I thank my mom (and dad!) for supporting me on my own path, even, or especially, when it is not the one they envisioned for me.
I hope I have the generosity to do the same for my children.
