the hectares of my heart

I look at this picture of my mother and I think she is probably the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.

my mother pregnant with me

Today my mother has officially spent half her life as a mother. She was 29. She had lived in Hawaii and Tucson and sundry locations across the Northeast. She had been married and divorced and married again. She and my father owned a house in the middle of a forest they loved. She had found a career in a field that utilized her degree (granted, that field did not and does not pay a living wage). She had and has great legs.

It's hard not to measure oneself against that.

I'm the same way, except it's with you. Damn you for always being more beautiful and accomplished than me!
