My mom died of cancer 20th of Oct. My sisters and I took care of her 24/7 and she passed away quietly. Here's a pic of my mother age probably 17-ish, and with newborn me at age 24. That's me buck naked.

From my mother I learned to use my hands, or get my hands into everything. I owe her a lot. This is an embroidery she did probably when I was around 5 or younger. I loved to dream about this mysterious world and would stare at it for hours.
