Call Your Mother

For_mom
Happy Mothers Day to all moms out there, particularly my wife the superhero known as Gotham Gal and my mom who reads this blog religiously so I know she’ll read this post.

Tom Friedman has an oped piece in the Times today titled Call Your Mother. It’s about his mom who passed away this past year at the age of 89. He ends it with the following line:

So on this Mother’s Day, if you take one thing away from this column, take this: Call your mother.

I sure wish I could call mine.

After reading that how could you not call your mom? I’ll be making my call this morning once I am sure she’s up.

The photo that anchors this post was taken by my oldest daughter Jessica who contributed it and two other of her works for a charity art show called Art Action that is running this weekend at 7 Mercer Street here in NYC. We visited the show yesterday.

I wanted to buy something to contribute to the causes that the show is supporting and decided to purchase the photo that anchors this post for my mom as a mother’s day gift. It’s called Lava Rock and it reminds me of my mom. Happy mother’s day mom.
