Happy Mother's Day

(It took a lot of convincing to
get my mother to pose for
this shot. She did not
like to be photographed, or
to be the center of attention.
My image is a photo of the photo,
which is why there are reflections|
on it, from the glass.)

Wishing all of the mothers in the world Happy Mother's Day.
And wishing all of the people who mother others a Happy
Mother's Day.  My mother was a wonderful woman -- kind,
funny, brave, generous.  She had a photographic memory,
and could recite Shakespeare -- no problem.  She was a great
cook, and a scientist with a Masters in Bacteriology.

Thank you Mommy. We all miss you.

Happy Mother's Day!
