To all who have mothered....

To all who have mothered another's soul.
a child, a friend, a mother and 
yes, pets and gardens count too.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart
For being tHERE when you were needed.

Jessica Stockholder: Wide Eyes Smeared Here Dear, 2009

This rainbow tower of color and plastic, held together with the magic of wire 
feels like my attempts at meal-time whether for family or friends.  
Let the chaos begin! 
And may it visit again.

Happy Mother's Day to all
as we are ALL in it to-get-her (together).

and the clothes hanging out to dry in the background ... it's an exuberant and bright and oversized representation of our tedium .... monotony made joyful :)
