Nurturing. Drawing Luke Hockley.

Dear Self,

Nurturing is a big open-hearted feeling when I see a baby.

It is listening to myself long enough to notice I’m not really breathing.

It is kindness, generosity and a fierce sense of protection for the people I love.

It is rocking and soothing and making sounds that settle.

It is sitting with myself long enough to know what I need next.

It is sitting with someone else long enough for them to work out what they need next.

It is listening to a baby long enough for them to show you what they need next.

Love

Luke
