Pots, Plants, and Thoughts for My Daughter

In Uncategorized on May 23, 2014 at 4:37 am

It’s been a week full of milestones and memories. My daughter Megan graduated with her Masters degree and turned 21 – all in the same week. 

Sitting on my patio, reflecting on these moments, I found my fingers curling around a small pot that sits on my outdoor dining table. It’s a pot that has, frankly, seen better days. It’s garish – green paint peeling away from red terra cotta and Van Gogh-styled flowers circling its exterior. But my daughter made this pot for me many years ago and I would rather part with my right arm than with this pot.

In many ways, my daughter’s life is rooted in this pot. I’m writing about it in my latest column for the Arizona Republic. I hope you’ll read along. http://t.co/Uglcu43GnD
