“Easter is meant to be a symbol of hope, renewal, and new life.” Janine di Giovanni
I just finished reading Kristin Hannah’s new novel The Great Alone, a page-turner about dysfunctional families, hope, renewal, new life, the sweeping beauty of outback Alaska in the ’70s and the grueling realities of living off the grid.
At the end of the book the author says of the main character, “Like all motherless girls, Leni would become an emotional explorer, trying to uncover the lost part of her, the mother who had carried and nurtured and loved her. Leni would become both mother and child; through her, Mama would still grow and age. She would never be gone, not as long as Leni remembered her.”
Affirmation: I am a “memory bank”
Coaching question: What are your two most precious memories? In what ways are you an “emotional explorer?”
