B 1940

This is my Mom. She loved, among many other things: salt in her porridge; ‘It’s Raining Men’ by the Weather Girls; crème brulee; Snoekies in Hout Bay; tennis with ‘the girls’; decorating her house for Christmas; flowers (especially for St Luke’s); her car, and washing her own car; Woolworths sales; Wilbur Smith novels; the feel of earth under her fingernails;
mystery; order, and disorder; her children; beautiful fabrics; singing; ‘Life After Love’ by Cher; dry white wine; family gatherings; hummus; gossip if it wasn’t vicious; ‘jumping’ (gym); absurdity; her grandchildren; food, and cooking food; being wild; being calm; courage.
