Listed below are links to weblogs that reference My Mother (by Laura Orem):


Such a vivid portrait, right down to the cocoa paste and Bulova watches. I bet she would love this tribute--thanks so much for writing about her here at the BAP blog!

Laura, thanks for this.

i love your mom and i love you.

congratulations, well written!

Your mom scared the hell out of me when we first met. Here I was a fella ten years older than you, and also had been married before.
Your mom became like a best buddy, a confidant, and sometimes a pain, but always alive, and full of conversation.
I miss our dinners together, and especially the coffee afterwards.

Rick, stop pretending to be me.

Thanks, everyone.

This woman will live forever, Laura.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
