First Things First

…this is from the second year of Gwynnie’s life, 2005.

Hathor says, “I like to sit under a tree and think and reflect and wonder. I meditate on breastfeeding, and motherhood and love and family. On culture and the state of the world. I think about peace and war and politics and government and worry just a bit, about things beyond my control. I come up with ways to be the change I want to see in the world. And then my hungry baby pulls up my shirt and reminds me to tend to first things first.”
