In praise of babca

This week Joanna and I are on our annual pilgrimage to stay with Joanna’s mother known as Babca (grandma).

Babca is a complete inspiration to me. She leads a very simple life and much of the day is taken up with the daily activities of gardening cooking and cleaning. There is almost a monastic quality in the precision and passion that she puts into everything she does. And, probably most important for her, she provides a space for her family to come and decompress from their hectic lives. For Joanna and I this has meant we haven’t smoked for three days sofar (though by the look of it the cravings haven’t stopped yet). Thank you Babca!
