My mom is a writer and just found out that some of her work will be quoted in an upcoming issue of Oprah's magazine O. I'm so excited and proud of her! Here is the quote...
What might my life be like were I to give in to the rhythms of my own ragged dance? Like this, I imagine, walking down the trail, past grapevines and winecups and huisache blossoming in the sun. Just like this attentiveness, this pleasure, this being present in the world.
It's an excerpt from What Wilderness is This, a collection essays from women writer discussing the Southwest. My mom's name is Susan Hanson and can you find the book here.
