Wednesday, April 7, 2010
As the saying goes. Life goes that way y'know? Here it is April and once again I find that I haven't written an entry in my little blog for months! But hey, whatever.
As I sit here listening to the dishwasher and trying to keep Poli away from the candle on the desk I can hear the crickets and the peepers outside chirping. and I know that spring is definitely here. But it was a sad spring for me. My mother died in early February, just shy of her 94th birthday, which was March 21st. We had our troubles, we fought and that's how I wound up in beautiful upstate New York, but I miss her. She did her best and she raised the three of us well. We all grew to be good members of society. My parents divorced when I was 12 and it wasn't easy fr her. She worked 2 and 3 jobs to try and make ends meet. And, even toward the end, when it was too difficult for her to really enjoy our Sunday chats she was feisty.
So, in her honor this is one of my favorite photos of her - taken in San Francisco on a motorized trolley tour of the city that I love so much.
Rest well Mom....
