The last three weeks of my mother's life she could not communicate verbally. In an attempt to understand what she wanted I made this alphabet chart for her to point at to spell words. I also had a number of commands written out as well. They proved rather useless, as even her ability to read seemed compromised.
I had some time, finally, to work on my own art and to take a small break. I have not had a moment off since December 1.
I am missing her quite a bit, in a quiet way, today.
