Pandemic Journal 20/6/2020 — Happy Single Parent Day!

This morning while you are in the bath, Zocolo, the local florist, calls to say they hid a bouquet behind your porch chair.

You discover this…


Your daughter writes…

Surprise!

I was thinking of sending you flowers…

How could a mother ever anticipate this haptic note, this brilliant and tender daughter love?


Solitary, but not alone, you brew coffee for a single mother with your daughter who lives in your heart (& happily in a more pacific climate across the Rockies.



Mother’s Day 2020, Edmonton, Alberta
