far from my tree – motherlode essay

My eldest with his little brother.

My eldest with his little brother.

My best writing always comes from my well of emotion in my heart.  That applies to both love and anger.  I put pen to paper in my small attempt to make some change in the world – when I’m outraged about social exclusion, or the prenatal testing question.  Or to encourage more kindness in the world.

Far From My Tree is my latest published essay, and it was written purely out of love.  My eldest son is a musician, and lives the uncompromising lifestyle that goes along with it.  I think of this piece as my love letter to him. xo
