I love Krista Tippett’s American Public Media show called On Being. The broadcast she did on Mother’s Day, seen in video above and in this online link–an interview with Sylvia Boorstein–allows the listener to experience the power derived from claiming motherhood (and grandmotherhood) as central to one’s story in life. Two thumbs up!
And I love six-word memoirs. Did you see the responses published in The New York Times to the Mother’s Day six-word memoir contest? Check them out! They are poignant, cute, hilarious, and profound.
What came to your mind as you watched or listened to Sylvia Boorstein? Or as you interacted with the online meditation and poetry that accompany the interview?
Have a six-word memoir about your own mother to share?
