Wishing you all a Healthy and Fulfilling 2013
~ Meera, M & A
In Indian culture, mātrudharma refers to the latent motherly instinct in women. Once a child comes along, motherly gene transcription kicks in and women instinctively know all the “How-to”s. So it has been with M, easily switching into her mother role. But there is no such tradition for fathers and I have had to learn it day by day. Of course, Meera is a great teacher! I call fatherhood a “stretch” goal and here is another whole year to keep stretching. What joy.

Yes, Meera has blossomed, particularly since you last saw her. But she is still the same (perhaps even more) stubborn child.
