Here’s to all the mothers in my life:
- To Ruth, without whom I would have no life, nor love of words and books, I suspect.
- To Dorothy, who gave me opportunities and aggravation, though not in equal measure.
- To Nancy, for all you did, all you gave, and all you put up with; and also for bringing forth three baby women into the world.
- To Kate, who has always brought sunlight into my life, and who brought Max into all our lives, and who will soon bring forth a new, wee companion for Max.
I love you all, ladies, both the quick and the dead. My life is better for having you in it.
Besos y abrazos …
