a conversation with my mother, whose love reaches deeper than the ocean

“I see you.”

”What do you see?”

”I see a girl who wants to travel the world.
And tell stories.
And connect with everyone,
through light and the wind and the stars….”

”I see YOU! You created me. I mean really, you created me out of thin air!”

”You were bursting through my soul before I even got to let you out.”
