Framing close to completion. Dropping in the roof tomorrow morning and hopefully will start laying in the planks in the afternoon. Pushing to get this done by Sunday night.

Brief morning work with out handyman to set up the outer frame. Need to add all the supporting beams. A long day of programming the AI ahead. It's going to be a fun weekend! Going to talk to the neighbors about a palette, but considering making the exterior imitate the abstract Barry McGee pieces. And then do vertical gardening on top of that. Might do an inch of topsoil and wildflowers on the roof. We'll see.

Looking back on the drawings of the past 5 months has my mother on my mind. I made her this little alter on Mother's Day this year. She would come every year on that weekend and I would always make her gluten-free pancakes with bacon for Mother's Day breakfast. I saved one this year for her.

Feeling it.

Happy Mother's Day to my amazing wife, seen here currently forming morning statues with the kids. She gives so much love to these kids, they are unbelievably lucky. Our family is so blessed. We love you mom!

Happy Mother's Day to each and every one of you mom's out there, we would not be here without you!

This Mother’s Day is going to be particularly tough.
It has been several months, almost a third of a year since my mother died. She keeps coming back to me in weird ways.
I keep the mask she used for radiation in my studio. It’s a deceptively beautiful object this mask, formed specifically to match the contour of her face. The reason for this is so that they could keep her head perfectly still; it was bolted down onto the table she was placed on. This way the blasts of radiation could be perfectly targeted to specific points on her brain. In my mom’s case it was not that specific, her cancer was all over her brain, like a shotgun blast of cancer. They essentially carpet bombed her brain with radiation. I know this was horribly painful, as her scalp became bright red by the end of the process. It was really the only aspect of her decline where she openly expressed pain.
The reason I am posting this, and describing this, is that my mother’s cancer metastasized from a cancer that started in her lungs. The kind of cancer that my mother had was directly related to the years and years of smoking that she did. The oncologist was a specialist in lung cancers, and he told me as much. It can also be caused my second hand smoke as well. I would have had a significantly better chance of celebrating Mother’s Day for her this year had she just not smoked.
If you have kids and you smoke, stop it.

In 5 years, when we look back and ask how the hell we hit rock bottom, think back on this man. He is truly a pox on our society.
