Mother

Mother.

For many of us, it was our first word, our first source of nourishment, our introduction, a unique and special bond unlike any other relationship on Earth.

Macaroni Necklace  (thoughts of Mother.)

When I was younger, after I introduced myself, I would have to explain how to say my name and what it means. I’m a smart-ass sometimes and this question maybe grew tiresome, or game-worthy, or poetic depending on which lens I view it from. It is strangely perfect, that my name is ZALMAN, that my mother’s name, Alma (which means ‘soul’ in Spanish) connects the first and last letters of my name.
