Where is Mother?

My mother seems to turn up in the strangest places! I usually find her roaming in the garden since it always was her favorite place to be.

I often see her face when I look in the mirror, or in the clouds as they roll by on the breath of the wind. Now and then I find her standing in my kitchen when the aroma of something I’ve made reminds me of home. Instinctively, my arms open to embrace her only to realize she isn’t really there… so I brush off the illusion and embrace the day instead… because that’s what she would want me to do.

Without further ado, here is the first post of It’s Only Words:

Today we are

teetering on a tightrope

stretched between yesterday and tomorrow

hanging on for dear life.
