A quote from Darcie. "My days overflow with laundry and dishes and groceries. I make appointments, wheat bread and dinner. I mediate and balance and tidy. I’m a teacher. A taxi driver. A nurse and a dietitian. I’m a damn good travel agent. A counselor. A banker. Spiritual adviser. I tie up loose ends and untangle knotty messes. I address, undress and redress. Bathe and bandage. Soothe and simplify. I’m nothing at all to most people but everything that matters to a select few. My job is to make soft the edges of this life–for the ones most precious to me. I do it every day and I like to think I do it well. And while it certainly is far from easy, I wouldn’t trade it for the world."
