I happen to think we don't have enough ritual in our lives. There needs to be something to commemorate this, a young woman becoming an adult. I'm writing/planning something. :)
But one of the things I want to give her is something I need your help on.
I want to give her a book of advice from people who are on the path she's about to step onto. Not just me, but all kinds of people. All of you. It doesn't matter where you are on the path, whether you yourself have only just become an adult or whether you have six grandkids. You have something to share.
It would honor me if you'd share your knowledge and advice with my daughter as she steps onto the path. I will bind this book and give it to her on her 18th birthday, along with some other supplies for the road ahead.
What have you learned?
What are you learning?
What do you wish you'd known?
What advice do you have for your new sister on the path?
Tell me anything you think applies. If it's private, e-mail me at shadesong AT gmail.com.
Thank you. :)
