|Baba Yaga by Emre Ohren (part of a series you can see HERE)|
Today's question and answer (via poet and oracle Taisia Kitaiskaia* of The Hairpin):
That's profound. So much of life - and how you react to it, what you choose to do - depends on how you see the world, the situation. Having to navigate any part of an important journey (marriage, babies, getting pets, moving house or cities, changing careers, renovation... the list goes on), with someone who can't see magic - or potential (or joy) - in the things you can, makes the road lonely, and lacking in resting places. When you essentially live in different worlds, despite being side by side, you can never relax and feel safe and known. Good words. I will have to find a way to ask "How do you see this portal?" and keep Baba's advice in mind.

To encourage Baba Yaga to continue imparting her no-bones-about-it wisdom (ok, there may be some gristle in there... bones too), I suggest we not to leave her box empty...
Thank you Baba Yaga (& Taisia).
