Moleskine updates

The completed version from the previous post. There is an eternal struggle from a mother's point of view , between the strong maternal urge to hold onto, protect and smother your child and the pressure to loosen the apron strings and prepare your child to go out into the big bad world.  The hardest thing to achieve is a healthy balance.

This is a mother who by normal standards has failed. Her idea of good mothering is to retain parts of her loved ones in a macabre, frightening way. The sex of the central figure is usually female simply because it is what I know. A lot of these attributes would apply to the male sex but I am not an authority on male feelings. I would appreciate some input on this subject.

No matter how we live our lives it always ends the same. No matter how wealthy, how powerful we are, it can't save us from the ultimate fate.
