Just Love and Imagination

I’m having a hard time finding the words that will succinctly sum up my 1.5 year hiatus. A lot of it was great. (I started making my health a priority finally!) Some of it was just trying to fill the void that the lack of an adequate creative outlet caused. (I took the ‘health’ thing a bit too far and got obsessive about it.

My mother is what most would call unassuming. I don’t mean that in a bad way, I just mean that she’s a normal lady doing the normal things that moms do. She doesn’t get her nails done, she only dresses up for ‘occasions’ although she always looks nice, and she doesn’t go to any big cities unless she’s visiting me or on a vacation.
