Ain’t no Sunshine When She’s Gone…

by bkajlich

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.
