Last night a dear friend celebrated his birthday and we were invited to the party at his farm house. Immediately I was struck by this sprawling family and how they honor their relationships with balance and routine. Among those in attendance were assorted friends, his mom, four brothers and their respective wives and children who come together every other year from all over the country. I am drawn to tradition, so it felt amazing to share some time with these people. Over potluck, I sat on their wrap around porch and listened to his daughter talk about her life in New Orleans, I was taken with wonderment. Who else has sat on these rocking chairs?
