Ask Baba Yaga: How Do I Keep From Dwelling on the Love I Haven't Had?

Baba Yaga's House by Nonobot

Just a taste and you will crave it always... at least, that's how it seems. What do you say to someone who feels like this (other than give them a hug and hide all sharp objects)? Baba Yaga knows.

This week's question and answer (via poet and oracle Taisia Kitaiskaia* of The Hairpin):
(Originally posted at The Hairpin HERE)

Know your empty place... Wow. I wish I'd heard that when I was younger. Just like an earlier commenter wrote on the original post:

  • I want to wallpaper my walls with Baba Yaga answers. (ktbean)

What do you think of Baba Yaga's advice?

Want to ask Baba Yaga a question of your own?
You can!
There's now an email address where you can send your questions
directly to Baba Yaga herself.
AskBabaYaga AT gmail DOT com
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).

Taisia Kitaiskaia is a poet, writer, and Michener Center for Writers fellow. Born in Russia and raised in America, she's had her poems and translations published in Narrative Magazine, Poetry International, and others.


  1. Love this one! So beautiful. Going in my "inspirations" and "parent advice" folders. Cheers.
