Tuesday



My beautiful mother.
World traveler, fly fisher, horseback rider, desert camper, adventurer, photographer, inveterate tomboy, wildlife painter, and the best friend a daughter could ever hope to have.

what a beautiful and adventurous woman your mother is, how fortunate and natural that this love of travel and the arts is passing on down through you and Q!
Very nice post.

Thanks Maia! I'm filling with joy when I read this post. It's her integrity that nourished a beautiful soul of a child who now becomes a mother of another beautiful soul. I love to see her, her photography, her house, read her adventurous stories ... thanks!
