What is the Meaning of Life?

Some nights are for this.

For reading e.e. cummings in the bath. For looking at the moon behind the clouds. For pondering the meaning of life. What’s it all for?

“we are for each other: then

laugh, leaning back in my arms

for life’s not a paragraph

and death i think is no parenthesis”

~ e.e. cummings

It’s for what we give to each other. It’s for what we share, not what we have. It’s for what connects us, not what divides. It’s for this second, not tomorrow or next week or month. It’s laughter and leaning into each other’s strength.

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter

    Hello,I had a question about starting up. I am a recent graduate and I’m working on starting a practice with a partner in the delta in Mississippi. I’m having some trouble brainstorming about ways to bring in income while working on applying for liscense and getting funding. I was thinking teaching-but are there other options to receive income duriing this start-up time?
