Today would be my mother's 74th birthday. It has been 23 years and I miss her every single day. She was a unique, beautiful being, and her life was not easy, but she she taught me to love life and nature and art, and she touched many people in her short life. She was brave, a person ahead of her time, and she was fierce in her beliefs and values. She was a person of highest integrity, and she will live on in my memory and that of my brother and sister as long as we are here. Mom, I miss you. I wish you were around.
