my mom says God can fix everything, just be patient
there were very few things she shoved down my throat
very calm, trusting, freedom-loving woman.
she didnt bother me about church and for the rest of my years i loved the good book
she didn’t bother me about literature and politics and music, and i love those too
she didnt tell me i watched too much tv or wrote too much
she encouraged me in whatever i loved, and i thank her for that.
and any time i see beautiful flowers i think of her.
this weekend when amber and i drove through malibu and thousand oaks (pictured)
and we saw all the wildflowers, i wanted to fly my mom out here to see them with her
because they’re poppin right now, big time.
