Today, on the day the holly king takes over from the oak king to preside over the waning half of the year, our daughter Rhiannon turns 23. I thought to teach her so much about life but really it is she who taught me, about motherhood, about love & friendship. Twenty three years was another life ago. Every day I woke and wanted to be a better person, was inspired by her to fully understand the capacity of love so that we could work with our ancestral gifts & unravel the crap. She is my best friend, an amazing human, and now she’s also a mother to baby Arthur. Life is quite beautiful. I am lucky to know her.
