Appropriate for the holiday and New Year vibes ahead, today we present you with a mother who is all grace and gratitude: A-lan Holt. The multi-facted artist—who recently released her first book of poems, Moonwork—also pulls triple-duty as the Associate Director at the Stanford Institute for Diversity in the Arts, and mother to a lively 3-year-old, Indigo. Below she opens the doors to her mountainside home, which she shares with Indigo and a small group of creative roommates, in Woodside, CA. Read on for her incredibly thoughtful words on living an inspired and purpose-fueled life.
