The latest piece in the Seasonal Creeks of Ukiah, Presentiment features a collaged printout of a photo taken in 1976 of me carrying my mom. I had told her, "you carried me 9 months; the least I can do is carry you 20 feet!"
As it happened, during the last 9 months of her life, in essence I did carry her, enabling her to remain at home to the end and for us to have developed a deep emotional intimacy.
