What is the good life? How would you describe it? I wasn't sure, but I thought it had something to do with keeping an indoor plant alive. Unsure, I did what I've been trained to do since a child: Listen to the wisdom of my family's matriarchs.
I come from a long line of strong women. My mother, queen of multitasking and making much out of little; my grandmother, always busy; my great-grandmother and her mother, both business owners. From these women I have inherited optimism and hardwon tenancity. Through their example and their stories I have also learnt the secret to the good life.
Want to know what that secret is? See my article in Issue 19 of Holl & Lane Magazine.
