"MOUNTAIN MEMORIES" I've been really missing my Mom and it's been a year since I've seen her. She has been living in western Kentucky where my Dad's people are from for many, many years. She grew up in the Appalachian Mountains of eastern Tennessee and we travel through there at least once a year it sure doesn't seem often enough. She is going to be 80 years old this coming September and she is still doing pretty darn good to be that age. She still has her own little house and her small dog Bebe for company and my sister and niece live really close to her. We lost my Dad back in '99 but he was 78 and had a good long life full of love with my Mom. Anyways we drive through the Mountains to visit her every year and I made a digital painting to remember a beautiful scene we saw last year when we drove out there. There was layer upon layer of gorgeous mountains that seemed to go into infinity.
