…to know

To know my mother is to know a vibrant woman who excitedly bursts forth laughing and teasing in a moment.

Attractive to others but not to some…

To know my mother is to know a woman who swam the Tacoma narrows and braved Deception Pass on her canoe.

To know of my mother is to gain a foothold on the edge of her mind as she goes from lucid to complex with the delicacy of a well placed butter knife.

…to know my mother, is to be a daughter or a son.

…to know my mother, means that you are loved.
