Today is my Mom's birthday. I miss her.
She's a very talented, self-taught artist.
Would you like to see some of her work??
She's a great realist, and I featured her on my very first blog:
At that time, we were always within an hour of each other.
Now, we have 2,900 miles and a world re-set between us.
Art was the bridge that connected us.
Drawings and sculpture. Theater. Dance.
In those ways, Chicago was perfect for us.
I wish we were there now. Together. With cake.
Happy Birthday, Mom.
We must make new memories, when we are able.
All my love,
