i am approaching my seventh year of doing STILL blog. my 82 year old mom, who lives three miles from me and whom i see regularly, has only shown passing interest in the project. she is a creative too, so she understand my creative ambitions, but she has never really shown any curiosity about STILL. then yesterday, i picked her up to take her to dinner, and she got in my car with a ziploc bag full of leaves. these leaves in this photo. they had blown across her yard from a neighbors’ tree and she thought they were particularly pretty. awww, mom. i’m so grateful that you are still here to surprise me at 82. happy thanksgiving indeed.
