September 29, 2021- Today is my sister’s birthday; tomorrow marks the anniversary of my late wife’s birth. Earlier this month, there occurred the birthdays of our mother and of two very powerful young women, whose full mark has yet to be made, but which will certainly be indelible.
From where does the first lesson about power derive? Boy and girl alike sense that power, in the loving embrace, soothing voice, warm smile and, quite often, the nourishment provided by mother.
The first lessons come from the mind and heart of the most dedicated teacher a child could ever want.
The first reassurance after each of life’s blows, whether they be glancing or crushing, comes from the spirit which gave life in the first place.
This love, this solid rock, stays with a child, long after adulthood has been reached. It is this which sustains throughout fire, flood and famine.
So, in all the world, as much as man or boy look to initiate, procreate and dominate, nothing of substance happens, save for the power of she.
