Thanks, Casey, for taking up the charge. From today's milestone, I can already tell you'll do a great job!

Good morning, gang. Working to get unpacked and our house in order. It's nice being home and getting our "routine" back.

Continuing my current obsession, this is an image of a kourotropho (Greek). A kourotrophos is a "child nurturer,Ē a god or goddess who protects children & young people.


Etruscan pendant, amber, about 130 mm or 5 inches tall, 600-550 B.C.


Sometimes we need protection, and sometimes we need to offer it to others. Iíll see you here tomorrow, I hope!

I made the mistake of Googling "child/mother" Aztec images. Too. Early.

I was going to find something lovely for C2, but damn you Google. I wasn't looking for actual births portrayed in sculpture.

Congrats on 18 months, C2!

Here's some homemade blackberry ice cream instead. I have bags in my freezer of wild blackberries I picked . Summer. mmmmm.



24 more hours, please. This is a sacred moment every day.

8:15AM.

Welcome back to those who need a little more help to get this going. Never, never, ever give up!

Good Day!
