Ellison Park

I love my weekly rides around the area with my Mom! Dad goes grocery shopping, and Mom and I take a ride to someplace, and get to talk, share stories, and enjoy each other's company! Mom's confusion about things prevents a lot of stuff, but on these rides, we become close, and get to set aside some of the problems, and just have fun. Sometimes quiet, sometimes chattering away about most anything, sometimes sharing stories from our past. Always feeling close. Yesterday we went to Ellison Park, and mostly just sat in the car watching nothing happen! The tree stump - above, and below - remnants of a very old willow tree. Past it's prime - a lot like Mom and me, but still with a wonderfully tangled and complicated beauty!

Thank you Mom!
