This is a picture of my mother. I have had this lovely image on the back of my business card for a couple of years now and it still lures me in for so many reasons. I love that she is on a motorcycle, yet she looks so demure and innocent. I love her lack of pretention; she's as far from a selfie as possible ;). She is riding outside her small village in order to collect peat to burn for heat in her home. I can smell the gasoline of the bike and the burning peat even from here (in the present). My mother has been a great advocate of my expressing myself via words and scent and I thank her for that. Here's Looking at You..Kid.
