Drawing the robins in the back yard and looking after the dog.
There are no words just these images. Found today 10th September. Today I am finding the mother in mothers stories, piecing it back together. Finding the images and the days that I lost. It feels like cheating, but there are no rules in art. Art breaks rules. I only found time for this today because both children are back at school.
I remember this day. Syd was away at his dads. My friend bought her dog to our home for us to look after. A day of dog sitting. We took the dog for a walk just before lunch and got something to eat at the local chip shop, in the afternoon Naoise drew pictures of the baby robins in the yard. I don’t remember what I was thinking or feeling but I know that we both loved having the dog for a day.
