Day Two Hundred Twenty-Seven: "Back to the Garden" by Elizabeth Beechwood


A woman recounts meeting her love, a hippie, and how that love evolves into a family with a daughter who, despite being the offspring of love and peace and freedom, takes to popularity, and politics, and the restrictions of the law that her parents had fought against. It is the story of a mother and how she comes to terms with who and what her daughter has become and how, through grandchildren, she can almost, even if in her own mind only, start again. Brilliant!

A link to the story online is here:
