In memori-mam, thinking of you...

Today it's exactly 4 years ago my mom passed away...


thinking of you - Red Cheeks Factory



I made this selfportrait. In my hands I hold  the geranium I took with me after she past away.I wrote a blogpost about it last year  We now have about 30 geraniums.

My Mom lived in a village near Rotterdam, in the house where I was raised. There are living other people now, but somehow I still have the idea she's sitting there in her special chair and I can go and visit...I wish I could...

Each year I make a special blogpost to honour her.

The first year  I posted this one: to honour my mom
(including some animations my mother made)

The second year I wrote another blogpost about her: far away, but still near 

Last year I wrote about her geranium  and today I am thinking of her and give the geraniums some extra attention...

Heel erg herkenbaar en je hebt weer een mooi werk voor haar gemaakt! Veel liefs voor jou vandaag!

Wat mooi dat je haar ieder jaar op een andere manier herdenkt. Ik heb nog steeds een klivia (en kindjes daarvan) die ik van mijn vader kreeg niet lang voor zijn dood in 1987.

This June will be 20 years since my Dad passed away suddenly.
There are so many dates, birthdays, anniversaries and such that I forget, or must write myself a note as not to forget but never the day that my Dad passed.
So... I send out a hug to you and hope you find comfort in the happy memories of your Mom.
I love reading about the geranium and I'm so glad for you that you thought to take it and create more special flowers from it.
