This is your life Ma

It's been a bit quiet on the Prozacville-front recently as I've focused my energies on a side project for my mother's 60th birthday (which is today).

It's a 60+ panel piece, with each illustration depicting a memory from her childhood - drawn, hand-coloured and then mounted on 'ash grey' board.

It has given me much pleasure collaborating with her on this Remembrance of Things Past/In Search of Lost Time undertaking.

This strange eventful history will now hang on a wall in her lounge, prefiguring perhaps the 'second childishness' to come, and oh yes, the 'mere oblivion' to which we are both now heading, albeit at slightly different speeds.

And thereby honouring life itself.

Hats off to you, Prozac!

I don't think I've ever seen a mother's face beaming quite so much at a birthday present. Your mom must be very proud of you or really like the present, or both.

Good job little pill!

Looks good. I've always been impressed by (and kind of envious of) your capture and completion of goals.
