My husband’s mother has dementia and her memory is declining quickly.
It is difficult to visit her at the facility where she lives but she is always happy to see us.
I did this grid in my art journal using some of the blue-toned printed paper I showed you yesterday:
And as I was photographing the pieces of paper where I had punched out my squares, they reminded me of windows:
The book page I gelli-printed on and used in my grid was about flowering plants from an old botany book. My MIL loved planting flowers.
I wrote this haiku with her on my mind –
Windows into time…
Squares of golden moments shine,
Fading with memory.
