Mother's Day

Ah, that time of year again. I actually used to leave the country and head to Italy, an attempt to escape the constant barrage of Mother's Day advertisements; a double whammy for me as my own mother died 40 years ago. But then Italy began celebrating its own version of  "La Giorno Della Donna" and it was, as Sartre would say, huis clos, "no exit". That was the turning point for me. Instead of being trapped in the abyss of accumulated loss, I challenged myself to transform the energy of the day. I have turned this holiday into a self-mothering day and ultimately I made it work me. Transformation is not only powerful, but empowering! I wish the same for all of you on this day...
