Happy Mother’s Day. To my mom and step mom. To the mother who has shared her home and heart with my older daughter during these challenging times. To the mother of my new “sister” Vicki (who now has Della Ray). To other mothers of children-of-all-ages everywhere. To mothers of fur kids. Mothers of invention. Mothers of necessity. Mothers of wisdom and good luck. Mother countries. Mother Nature. The mother of all good.
And on this day of honoring the power and purpose of mothers of all kinds, I’d like to give a special shout-out to Motherlode, the astounding, hopeful, inspiring documentary (see trailer below) that I had the good fortune to view during a public screening in Piedmont Park last fall (back when we were able to do such things), with big thanks to a father, actually, named Andrew Harding:
To everyone and their mother who is riding bikes to freedom during this global pandemic, you go, girl.
If you’d like to join us, here’s my Mother’s Day gift to you.
