I just received this picture of my mother, taken at the old town art fair in the 1970's.
My god! how young she looks! I wonder if she knows she is beautiful?
this is the way I remember her most, from my childhood. big floppy hat & her big floppy purse, beads, fringe & sandals. holding her pinkie or her belt loop, to cross streets, to get there. We would go to the various art fairs, in & around Chicago In the summertime, we'd look & dance, eat art fair food, & gab with friends. My favorite was always the Lincoln street art fair, they would close off Lincoln ave. between Beldon & Webster & throw the party of the year! there were buskers (people playing music behind their hats), wonderful art, face painting, water balloon fights in OZ park, & a band at either end of the street . We the children were allowed to run amok & the theater company would hold short attention span theater for the littles.

This is my mom today, still a free spirit!
