Mom: an old drawing

I was saying the other day that I wish I had some of my old drawings. Then I remembered this one of my Mom standing in her kitchen. It’s undated but I’d guess sometime in the 70’s; my mom had this on her fridge and I’ve had it ever since she died. That cutting board in the background is around my house somewhere. It’s such a characteristic view of my mom and I guess she liked it too. Where is all this family stuff coming from? I guess it’s the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement feelings coming out in me. Love you Mom.

    What a sweet drawing, and an apron too. My mom always wore aprons.

    how much of my memory of my mom is of her back as she stood at the counter chopping, stirring, washing the dishes. Really captures the mood in the posture.

    I must admit that I also wear an apron…not cute like my Mom’s, though, just a denim apron.
