Spectacular Mother's Day Art

I was pondering what to write about to express the appreciation for the sacrifice Mothers make on a daily basis and I came across these 5 spectacular photographs with the meaning behind them and wanted to share them.  Sometimes there are no words and just seeing is a much bigger impact.  Thank you to my mother, my incredible wife for being the BEST mother to our children, and to all the Mother's who work tirelessly and selflessly everyday to better the lives for their children.  

Mothering in Bad Weather by Bathsheba Demuth and Peggy O’Donnell - Spring 2021

“Offill allows her characters to mother in a plurality of ways: giving birth to children of their own; offering child care for the children of neighbors or relatives; educating or advocating for the children of all. Mothering, in the world she draws, can be a wide-ranging act. Love of the young is capacious. Caring for their lives has no biological requirement.”

Cherry Season by Katrina Vandenberg - Autumn 2020

“Inside every question I have about mothers and daughters, I find another. They open and open into infinity.”

Mother Culture by Carl Safina - Summer 2020

“A mother sperm whale spends five-sixths of her time far from her baby. And this dilemma, more than anything, drives the sperm whale’s social arrangement of living in female-led families where everyone knows each other and everyone protects the young.”

Fear Itself by Melanie Challenger - Autumn 2018

“I don’t believe I was truly fearful until I became a mother, which was seven years ago now. There is experiencing fear for yourself, which is really an acute category of loneliness, when you become suddenly aware of your vulnerability and of your entrapment in your single, unique body. Then there is fear for your children, which, loosed from the confines of one body to worry about, magnifies and outstretches both time and specifics. I suspect that many parents are towed by an invisible thread of fear for their children pretty much their whole lives.”

Baby Fever by Belle Boggs - November | December 2015

“Human child-longing goes by different names, depending where you live. The English call women afflicted by this condition broody, a term borrowed from the henhouse. (Broody hens are the ones who won’t rest or roost, but sit constantly on a clutch of eggs, sometimes plucking out their breast feathers to keep the eggs warm.) Americans, perpetual taskmasters, say that the biological clock is ticking. In Scandinavia they call it baby fever, a widely observed condition, which manifests itself as everything from a generalized wishing for a child to a delirious, aching sickness.”
