Happy Mother's Day to all those who are mothers now
and to all those who have been mothers in the past. 
To all grandmothers,
and biological mothers. 
To all men who mother their children. 
To all the animals who mother their children so well,
and then let their children go into the world.

years ago I saw a series where
a photographer had found relatives of
people who posed for john singer sargent paintings and
he took photos of them that were reminiscent of the original pictures.
they were quite wonderful.
