The day where I step out of the way of myself and offer you a small piece of me.
This is a heart project. In chapbook length. It is not grand sweeping, or overachieving.
But I've never felt comfortable with large productions of anything.
I like to keep my bare feet in the soil -
Let the cool earth remind me that I am but dust,
let the poplar leaves whisper to me the secrets of the sun that the trees hold within their trunks.
So today, I offer you a small bound version of myself and motherhood.
It is the day that I place my own dreamcatcher next to the one I am making with my children,
let the bow of the tree bend a little with the weight of my trusting my life, my dream.
let the wind blow my words into your hands.
Without further ado, I would like to offer to you, Dreamcatcher.

that are woven into the beautiful tapestry of mother and child,
learning and belonging to one another.
Finally, this past weekend, I attended BlogHer 2013 in Chicago, where I was insanely humbled to be honored as on of BlogHer's 2013 Voices of the Year. It was a magical day. That included Queen Latifah. Seriously.
All of these wonderful experiences have lead me to this place of being able to offer you Dreamcatcher. I am so excited (and terrified, but let's focus on the excited part) to see where this leaving your dreams hanging on a tree will take us.
