Looking For Guides

Grizzly Meadows, Trinity Alps, California in September

…even if we could lead love-thirsty people to the water,
they would still have to fill their own glass, and take a sip.

Next they’d need to remember how to repeat those steps – day after day after day.

The business and practice of loving is hard work.
(When you have forgotten where the water is, look for guides.)

About Martha Phelps Studio ~ creative on purpose

...a meandering journal of a changing life and the unexpected graces it brings. Earlier posts may provide some history, but this series of writings aren't likely to follow a straight line as I explore topics such as raising kids, making choices, self discovery, the impact of change on a family and how to (hopefully) live with balance and purpose. www.marthaphelps.com
