“Some people birth artistic creations
rather than biological children;
that is also a valid form of parenting.
What comes forth from your soul
is your child,
whether it is a person, pet, book,
art piece, musical composition,
house design, course you teach, garden,
or any other unique expression
that springs from your spirit.
Then that creation
ripples out into the world
and, like a human child,
has a life of its own."
— Alan Cohen
