Seeking new relationship…

Elderly hippy, likes wearing flowers. Enjoys sunbathing.

Excellent home maker. Patient, generous… fairly even tempered, but subject to mood swings. Has been known to throw the occasional wobbly. Exceptionally good at dealing with children. No religious affiliation or prejudice. Excellent teacher.

Currently in an abusive relationship.

In need of a little TLC.

Sacha’s challenge this week is to write an advert for your own mother in exactly 52 words. I took a slightly wider view of ‘Mother’.

The painting is Mother Dressed in Blue, by my friend, artist Benjamin Prewitt.

      Isn’t it? He was kind enough to gift me several of his works when he stayed with me a few years ago. And yes, she is the mother of us all…and mine would murder me if I tried to advertise her 😉

    A standout interpretation, Sue. The original prompt was catalyst enough for some serious contemplation; but your take on it elevated this one to something on the lines of art.

    And I’m totally adding “to throw a wobbly” to my idiomatic repertoire!
