• You are such a talented writer, my dear. This post spoke to me so much that I just may wallpaper my bedroom with it.

  • Your writing is so descriptive I was right there with you, smelling the air, seeing the stars and just Being.

    Awesome stuff.

    You make me want to be a better writer, to take more care, to plan my posts rather than just spewing them out as they rise up. Oh boy. I just realised that my posts are just-like-bile.

    This might explain my stats.

  • Absolutely stunning and beautiful post! So deep but yet such a simple message. We are not in control as much as we try to be. Our pages are already written and will fall where they may. BEAUTIFUL!

    Wow. This is beautiful. You write as beautifully as you take photographs.

  • From a distance, the lotus appears, as any flower does, to be pretty and ephemeral. Look closely, though, and you find the beauty of the lotus is based on things far more complex than what you can see at first blush.

    It would seem, Lotus, that you are aptly named.

  • I’ve been reading your blog for over a year, and this is the first time I leave a comment.

    I used to write, years ago, and then I experienced a massive loss and stopped writing. Then I discovered your blog.

    Like Ness, you make me want to be a better writer.

    This post is exactly the case in point.

    Love, from half-way across the world.

  • Hi honey! I read this late last night and didn’t comment and for that I am sorry. It’s beautiful. My favorite line is: “I hope he is happy with the way the sky looks when he lays his head back.”

    Wonderful – all of it!

  • “It would be foolish of me to try to force the stars to stand out in the sky in a specific order.”

    Probably the best sentence I’ve read in YEARS Lotus. YEARS. There is so much imagery and so many things here that hit so close to home for me. Your words have left me obviously, incapable of leaving a coherant comment. And I love you for that.

  • This was beautiful! Your descriptions of the surroundings made me feel like I was lying right there with you! It also really struck a chord with me and made me think about my first “love.” I love the analogy that you used with the stars — I, too, think everything just tends to happen like it’s supposed to, whether we want it to or not. I’m so glad I popped over here to read this!

    Thank you again.

  • This is indeed a great post. Keep up the good work Mom! I’ll try to follow your blog. By the way, there’s a new social networking site dedicated to parents and kids, it’s called Bluepixo.com – it’s a place for Moms, Dads, and Kids! Now, there’s even a chance to win a free iPod Nano! I’m inviting you to meet other parents. And enjoy parenthood to the fullest. Thanks.
