Kitschy-koo Mystery Momma, Thank you for your happiness.

There's a shop called Kitschy-koo around my corner, past the old Italian men playing cards at their cafe, after the Halal butcher and the letter box so loose and graffitied I can hardly bring myself to mail anything there. At Kitschy-koo I found this photograph in a shoebox, along with other photographs of people I do not know. I chose a handful of photos of glorious menopausal women to insert in my Book of Death, a sketchbook of collages, commentary and photography depicting mortality's maw from a woman's viewpoint. But this photograph is of a young woman and - perhaps - her boys. It's such a happy photo I kept it away from the Book of Death, for now. Maybe I'll put it in there when the going gets in real need of a sprinkle of happiness. I wonder where she is now. I wonder how her boys are now. However they might be, weren't they lovely then? Happy mothers' day, mystery momma.
