May 08, 2011 Happy Mother's Day! I am pretty lucky to have an "outside the box" mom. In fact, I don't even call her "Mom" or "Mother" or even "Ma"; she's been "Lady" to me for as long as I can remember. Even when I hang out with my friends they ask, "How's Lady?" instead of "How's your Mom?". A writer, avid gardener and activist, Lady has been quite the inspiration to me as I've grown up. Here we are at a Santana concert circa 1998. I'm wearing my widest leg Modrobes with pride and doing a little people watching with Lady on the lawns of the Molson Amphitheatre. It was a perfect afternoon! Happy Mother's Day Lady!
