happy mama’s day dear mom. xo
that’s my mama in monterrey, mexico 1951
flash forward to 2017
i’m happily sewing away in my sunny little studio. listening to the birds trill in the trees. sorting through different sizes of paper scraps.
i’m also popping over to facebook every now and then to see the photos being posted of moms.
and i’m listening to elena ferrante’s 3rd book in the neapolitan quartet. so so good. i would say unputdownable. except i’m listening. so i’ll say unturnoffable.
also, intermittantly reading various articles on the political climate of 1960’s naples, perusing maps of naples, and reading articles about elena ferrante’s naples.
do spill your own can of beans and let me know what you’re doing. i was thrilled to receive an email this morn from someone who is currently staying at “my” venice apartment. and she sent me pics. oh joy!
okay. back to the sewing machine and my pile of scraps.
