This special event brought to you by the 35th anniversary of my mother’s death. I owe a great deal to a mom I barely remember. Clearly, a large chunk of the books I own (mainly poetry but also theatre), my itch for dressing up and costume, and my copies of the Nutshell Library are all thanks to my mom.
Multiple Sclerosis sucks. If you have the opportunity to give to someone walking in the MS walks or MS Challenge Walk this fall, please do. MS robbed me of my mom, a woman who almost certainly would have come with me to Costume-Cons and maybe even SF cons, if she’d been alive and well. She would have been 79 last October. I am six years older than she was when she died.
