Love Where You Came From

…I’m not going to say, “Happy Mothers Day,” because it’s a silly holiday that reinforces the idea of nuclear families and maternal instincts in women. Sorry to be a downer!

I’m taking today to appreciate what a positive, inspirational force my mother is, and how much I respect her as a woman, not as a mother.

Mom and Me, 1989

Also, reading suggestion for today: In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens, by Alice Walker.
