Along with over 500,000 Americans (and about 50,000 more annually!), my fabulous, smart, hilarious, strong mom is dealing with Parkinson’s Disease.    She’s such a good mom and in this stage in her life, she’s truly shown me what it means to be gracious and strong in the face of adversity.  I hope to be half as resilient as she is no matter what life serves me.   I have photographed her my whole life, and the past several years have been no exception.  In photography school I made a slide show of her life, to that point.  Here are some of my favorites:  some from the 1950s and 1960s (photographer unknown), others are my photographs and are more recent.  The dude in the photographs is my Dad: the giver of T.Spoon nickname.  Feb17-18.jpg
