Happy Birthday @iPhoneGran

11.10.09

It’s my mom’s birthday this week, so yall can send her a little love and support. Right?

Every day my mom takes a picture with her iPhone and posts it to her site. It’s never edited, and reduced by a mere 30%. It think it’s fun to watch my Mom each day.

Naturally on My Mom’s birthday I’m thinking about my relationship with her, our relationship with her, as a family. Then I realize that I’ve lived out of her house longer than in it. When I draw on my memories of me and my mom they’re from my adulthood, and not as much from my childhood. The adulthood is crisper and clearer.

I’m someone’s adult child. That is strange.

Happy Birthday Mom, what a wonderful Mother, Mother in Law and Granny you are.

Have You Ever?

Worked your ass off towards a goal, gotten incredibly close, had a conference call and maybe been too cocky?

Sure, we all have.

But have you ever then googled the folks on the other end of the call and found out that they are like OhMyGawd the king of the universe?
Oh, no me neither.
