It's time to lose your mind and let the crazy out.

6 Years Plus 1 Day

Lest you think I forgot, yesterday was the anniversary of my mom's passing. The picture I posted is from the last Muny Band concert in July 2000, about 3 months before she left us. She was our guest conductor, and she had a ball. She wore these big earrings she bought for me years before because she thought they looked like treble clefs. She really did love life.

Although I know I can function without her, I still miss her.

    It's a beautiful picture Elaine!


    PS There's 25 of the old me and 12 of the new me. Weird.

    What a beautiful photo. I'm sorry to hear your mother has passed away. I know how much you must miss her.

    Even though my own mother drives me crazy 90% of the time, I can't imagine losing her.


    Thanks for visiting my blog!

    Ok, who wrote that last comment? Oh, right, probably Cori. Yeah, John had to work and I had to be in St. Louis at 5:10, so we couldn't go. We should be there from now on. My mom did like Bolero.

    Also, Dana, My mom drove me BONKERS! I won't deny it. But, she also meant the world to me, and most days I wish I would have told her more about how much I loved her.
