"...this power is what we are losing when we refuse to give a little time out of our lives to "Mother Culture."
I took this quote from my page dedicated to Mother Culture. (see tabs at top of page)
the trampled path running down the center through the leaves?
Evidence that somebody has been here recently.
I imagined a squirrel forest highway leading to the winter storehouse
where the really good nuts are hiding..
"Parents, love your children," is, probably, an unnecessary counsel to any who read this page; at any rate, it is a presuming one. But let me say to reserved, undemonstrative parents who follow the example of righteous Abraham and rule their
households,––Rule none the less, but let your children feel and see and be quite sure that you love them."
"...dear mother, take your big schoolgirl in your arms just once in the holidays, and let her have a good talk, all to your two selves; it will be to her like a meal to a hungry man. For the youths and maidens––remember, they would sell their souls for love; they do it too, and that is the reason of many of the ruined lives we sigh over."
