This photo is of my Mother, and was taken in 1967. I think she must be sitting on a lawn in the Wairarapa, in New Zealand. How cool are the Hydrangeas?

Things I love about my mother: her compassion and complete acceptance, her love of words, her secret subterranean girlishness. Her cooking.

I wish we didn’t live so far away from each other.

    Me too! You do know how to make a person cry.

    It was Auntie’s garden in Wellington, by the way, and the shadow is Auntie’s. En route to Canterbury, for my first year at university.
