WWM: Day 1 Mom’s Stuff, Leaf Goddess

Doing ritual here… memories of my mom’s house.

This leaf and straw goddess was a gift from me when she moved to Ashland Oregon
It has survived all her moves and now lives in my finish room.

Objects hold a lot of memories… good and bad!
By writing and drawing I am putting it all straight,
the complicated relationship of mother and daughter.
Somehow the memories and the connection are integrated
into a wholeness and possibly healing presence when I draw and write them.

I’ve been printing and sending her my blog posts, but not this one.
Thankfully she doesn’t go online and never found my blog.

“Paint as you like and die Happy!*”
