my mother called last night. not that this is unusual, we are close and talk a few times a week. she had been reading my journal. she told me that i don't talk about her enough. and that she should have been listed more in my 100 things because i didn't say anything about her except how long she was in labor.
so....

dear mom,

i think it is cool that you can read my journal. most moms wouldn't dare tread here. i love that our relationship is open enough that i can share all the details of my life with you and not be afraid of your reaction. so, if i don't tell you enough, you are my best friend and i love you.

love,

the good daughter

Maia, I envy that you have a mother that is close to you, who understands you. I know that my mother loves me dearly, she dotes on me whenever I am home, but she is basically a very simple person and I am very complex. She really doesn't understand me at all. If I am with her long enough I eventually end up feeling sad because there is this gap between us.

You should consider yourself lucky.

oh i do consider myself lucky. my mom is awesome. she is open-minded and understanding. when i converted to Buddhism she read everything she could on it to understand. she has even applied some practice to her own life. when i came out to her in the lifestyle, she asked questions. she does not understand it, being a very strong, independent woman, but she accepts it. she almost came to our new year's party! she supports anything i do. when i wanted to run off to india, she tried everything to stop me, but still supported me. when Chris died she was there for me...letting me have my space, but always calling to see how i was doing.
only at my mother's house for thanksgiving can we end the meal by showing our new tattoos, bruises and piercings!
it hasn't always been this way. we didn't get along so well when i was a teenager, but, in my adulthood, we have grown to be best friends.

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
