The Messenger

Crows are thought to be messengers, tribal members, tricksters, and speakers. Miles is all of these: bringing elements of deep, primitive love to me from the other side of the cosmos. He is my mirror and my challenge, my creation and my gift to you. May you see in him a twinkling glimpse of what I can see.

"...but it was my intuition, my sense of myself and my child, and my love that made me a good mother." --Mallika Chopra, 100 Promises to My Baby

yet another dreamy photo of MLC!

the crow...interesting. right before satch was born a skunk sprayed our home twice and everyone kept telling me that the skunk is satchel's totem animal.

we received your wonderful postcard. Satchel likes to carry it around and sing "da da da da" to the tune of winnie the pooh while holding it. he keeps it in his little tikes wide tracker walker / mail cart.

much love!
