“… there’s a typical look of the mother:
skin a little ashier than the average woman her age,
hollows under the eyes a little more pronounced,
a smile playing about her lips as the eyes dart nervously,
wondering what might happen next.
She is sometimes proud, sometimes amused.
She is never quite relaxed.”
~ Judith Newman
from her book To Siri, With Love:
A Mother, Her Autistic Son and the Kindness of Machines

A lovely photo, like the sun peeking through the trees. Your quote is wonderful & I imagine probably reflects how you often feel. Your park looks a wonderful spot to wander.
What a great quote, I suspect you read it and nodded your head in agreement. A lovely photo there, capturing a sunny autumnal day in England perfectly.
