A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

Yellow by Anne Sexton

A tale I heard

Michelle Obama on being a mother:

"Motherhood has taught me that, most of the time, my job is to give them the space to explore and develop into the people they want to be. Not who I want them to be or who I wish I was at that age, but who they are, deep inside. Motherhood has also taught me that my job is not to bulldoze a path for them in an effort to eliminate all possible adversity. But instead, I need to be a safe and consistent place for them to land when they inevitably fail; and to show them, again and again, how to get up on their own."

A tale I saw

A tale I wrote

April had only seven things she loved:
Her mum
Her dad
Her older brother
Her older sister
Her younger brother
Her puppy
And the cemetery they all lived in.
