Thinking of my mum

It was ten years this week since my mother died. I went up to Auburn, on the 18th, and had a really happy time with dad, and also spoke with all my siblings and with various other Auburn pals during the day. Mum was a really lovely person, and I feel very lucky to have had her love, support and her example too. Here are some pics, of mum at various stages (photos of photos, obviously), and of the day with dad on Wednesday.

    Interesting how someone’s presence transforms open ground to frames of human love and remembrance. Typical Elizabeth ‘set’ of reflection photos around your parents and their special places. Nice

    • Think this is you Peter – lovely to hear from you and thanks for the comment my dear. It is interesting how places become imbued with the sense of a person – certainly the hill is a bit like that for me, not to mention lots of other places around Auburn. Hope you are well my dear.
      Cheers
      Elizabeth

    • Lovely to hear from you Mandy – yes mum was lovely in my opinion (not biased or anything!) – it is never hard to think of her. How long is it since your mum died?? Hope you are well my dear xxxx
