It has been a good year but I am ready for great things in 2011.
You have read stores about my mom, well I am devoting my last post of the year to her.
She has not felt too well and didn’t want to “bother” us. Is this a generational thing?
On Dec 26th she was diagnosed with pneumonia. So I have been staying with her for the past week “doctoring” her back to health. I found an interesting story.here.here.
An exert here: French photographer Sacha Goldberger found his 91-year-old Hungarian grandmother Frederika feeling lonely and depressed. To cheer her up, he suggested that they shoot a series of outrageous photographs in unusual costumes, poses, and locations. Grandma reluctantly agreed
With the unexpected success of this series, titled “Mamika” (or grandma in Hungarian), Goldberger created a MySpace page for her. She now has over 2,200 friends and receives messages like: “You’re the grandmother that I have dreamed of, would you adopt me?” and ” You made my day, I hope to be like you at your age.”
Give or take the 20 something age difference between Sacha’s grandmother and my mother, there are many similarities.Enjoy the pictures.
