The Practice Of Parenthood
By: Danny Thomas
The practice of parenthood,
Is like refining the art of giving yourself over to entropy.
I’ll tell you this
It is for me, learning that my relationship with chaos,
With energy of any sort in this place, is less about trying to master it,
And more about trying to fail gracefully in the face of it, at least as often as
I succeed by chance.
Chance has been good to me!
I must try to walk with gratitude…
For all this
A glorious balancing act to navigate.
Which crisis to avoid
Which catastrophe to enjoy
And which miracle to take notice of…
