They say wisdom comes with age, I beg to differ. For me, wisdom began with Soren. I always thought of myself as some-what wise - more intuitive than anything. Now I feel like I know what wisdom is beginning to feel like... and wisdom says - we're just getting started. Watching Soren grow has taught me so much about myself, about others... about life.
Soren's current lesson: the improbable doesn't mean possibility isn't around the corner. I know this might not make much sense, but to some it will definitely ring a bell. I am reminded everyday as I watch Soren grow, do things he couldn't do before and discover the world around him - possibility is there! Finding opportunity in every successful step, grab, reach and tumble. He reminds me that even though it seems improbable now, that a different possibility is opening up. It's seems like a karma or guru-type thing to say and this could be a result of reading some Herman Hesse, but it really makes all the sense in the world.
I didn't know I would ever find a life long partner, and a recording project introduced me to him. I didn't know I could or would be a mother, but Soren was the best unexpected surprise I could have asked for. And now... I am planning for some change, hoping for some possibility. And it seems improbable now - but not impossible, thanks to Soren.
Here is an example of how Soren inspires, from inching, to crawling, walking and climbing. From banging buttons, to pushing the receiver, waving, holding a phone - to saying hello and holding a very, very important conversation. Plus - it's just plain adorable. Enjoy!
