Ain’t no Sunshine When She’s Gone…
My mom has been here all weekend. It’s been wonderful to have her here. I feel lucky that I can say that about my parents. We’ve pretty much covered every foot of my neighborhood… I showed her all my new haunts, introduced her to the worlds best smoothie, and let her mommy me… which was exactly what I needed.
Tomorrow she heads back to Seattle… to my dad, who I know will be very glad to get her back. I will of course, be sad to see her go. There is a different kind of light about this place when she is here, and while the glow will last a little after she leaves, it never really is the same.
