Just as I was in the process of doing that, I received a beautiful email from a mother, prayerful soul, and blogger about Seeing Past Z, a memoir I published years ago. Seeing Past Z was motivated by my hope, as a mother, that we might yield to our children more time to imagine, more time to be. It was inspired by the years I spent reading and writing with my son and, ultimately, with the children who began to come to my home to explore stories and their making.
It was, I'm saying, my first book about words, and Missy K was delivering it back to me on a blog she calls A Daily Portion. Her ruminations on this book, and her careful reporting on my own life since it was published, are so quietly, so compellingly rendered. They touch me deeply.
I share them with you today, with the hope that you will make A Daily Portion part of your daily habit. It will be worth your time.
