ON MOTHER'S DAY

  1. thinking about this lovely piece: "Our Mothers as we Never Saw Them" by Edan Lepucki
  2. "For me, as for many daughters, the time before my mother became a mother is a string of stories, told and retold...photos serve as a visual accompaniment to the myths. Because any story about your mother is part myth, isn’t it?"
  3. "For daughters who closely resemble their moms...these mothers and daughters are twins, separated by a generation, and an old photo serves as a kind of mirror: How do I look? Even if there isn’t a resemblance, we can’t help but compare ourselves to our young mothers before they were mothers."
