Happy Mother’s Day!

Mothers.  Women we often ignore, or sometimes we plain dislike them. Doubtless, there are mothers out there who bear disliking.  But that has not been my experience.

Oh, I have had fights with my mother, arguments, fallings out, and things of that sort.  Most people have.  But one of the wonderful, wonderful things about a good mother is that she is almost always willing to forgive the spats and annoying disagreements.  Especially if you take out the trash for her or wash up the dishes as part of your apology when she is invariably proved right about whatever it was the two of you disagreed upon.  After all, mothers are the ones with experience in the world.  What her children think is new mother has seen many, many times before.

For that reason, I have included this song below, “The Mom Song,” in honor of mothers all across the globe.  It is not the most flattering song in the world – but it is a mother’s song:

 

Happy Mother’s Day!!

About The Mithril Guardian

I like stories.  Whether they’re on film, in song, or in print, I always remember a good story.  They remind me of paintings.  People cannot see them without learning something.  So it’s a good idea to look at a story from as many angles as possible.  I can watch the same movie a million times and still I will learn something that I did not know before.  Thoughts on the Edge of Forever is where I get to focus on what I learned from stories; what was not obvious the first time, the second time, or the umpteenth time. Earlier posts are written in the form of letters, usually to specific characters, to point out what I saw in a particular story or heard in a piece of music. Some of those letters, though, are like letters to the editor. Why did someone write a story this way and not another? Would the story have turned out better if the writer had done something different? These ‘letters to the editor’ will probably never be answered by the writers - the characters certainly will not answer anything - but their contents are still up for debate. After all, unless you ask a question, you will never get an answer. Still, civil ground rules apply. Any foul language or other form of abuse will not be tolerated in Thoughts on the Edge of Forever. I mean, who wants to be around the guest at the dinner party who is being nasty? Practically nobody, since people go to a party to have fun, not to hang around a grouch. So let’s have fun!
