My Mom.

I don't always draw stick figures...sometimes I like to sketch. This is a drawing of my mom.



We went on a little trip together, just mom and me, in Philadelphia. I looked after her a bit, and even though I'm now fifty, she cuddled me and said I was still her baby...

My mom is the one who encouraged me to draw when I was little. The story goes that when I was two, she tried to draw on my drawing; apparently I grabbed the crayon out of her hand and pushed her away.

It's been three months since my Grandmother died. We mustn't hesitate to spend time with those we love.

    1. Thank-you for saying that....perhaps I will, but I feel shy about framing.

    1. Sweet, but I'm no goddess. I'm just a lowly mortal!

  3. Whether you're religious or not (I'm really not) hitting your knees in the morning and just saying thank for the loved ones in your life is well-worth twenty seconds. Then, go call them.

    1. Spending time with those you love....that's the thing that makes memories. And what is a life if not a collection of memories?

    1. I wonder if that is a definition of art...evocative - is that the word?
