Happy Mother's Day, all. My fellow potter-blogger Tracey Broome inspired this post with her own of her fine daughter and musician Wes. I thought I'd post a few photos of the mothers around us and the children that make them mothers. We're off in a moment for a Mother's Day lunch with Dee's mom, Jan Potter Dorchester, and with Dee's dad, Doug Dorchester.
So, here we go. At top, our son Marcus as a proud young fisherman on Martha's Vineyard, holding a scup he caught (or maybe Doug caught) on a fishing trip with his grandfather. Next, Dee and Marcus and his wife Anastasia, on their neatly gardened front yard in Seattle. Below that, Marcus and Anastasia with a wartime black-and-white image of the young lovers Doug and Jan. Then Jan a couple of years ago with a rapidly diminishing tray of something she knows I like to eat at picnics. And at the bottom, Dee and the two kids again, playing with the drills in the kids' mid-renovation bathroom, also in Seattle.
All for now.
