Today celebrates my one and only mother. Even though in her case there are a few in one.

Three photos with the loveliest smiles below were of course taken by father.

They say there is just one mother
but I’m so lucky I have some:

A Partisan, a teenager,
a good fairy, a chef sublime,

always caring, worrying,
mothering, doing fine.

There is just one mother,
I’m so lucky to be born near mine. 

Dear mother, happy birthday and thank you for being a good place!

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

  1. This is a beautiful tribute to your Mom. I love how you see the many (many) dimensions of her — and these are just the ones illustrated by recent photos. What a wise and loving appreciation! And a beauty lady. Happy Birthday to her!

    p.s. compliments to your Dad on those yummy-looking asparagus.

    1. Thank you, Ju-Lyn! Lovely to see you around. 🙂 Yes, I’ve been with my parents all month and it’s the first of three, which is how long I’ll stay in Slovenia. Italy is too hot. Hope you’re well too.
