Mexican inspired kitschy shrine to my mother

My mother was almost a saint. She spoke quietly, which Marco misses a lot. She was a sweet and elegant woman who loved to be with her children, family & friends. She loved fashion and dressed in a chic bohemian style. She loved Sóller, Majorca; she had an affinity for the place because she thought that Sóller could give her energy & peace.
She is dressed in the traditional Majorcan headdress-the payesa. This picture was probably taken when my parents took me to Majorca when I was turning 2 years old.
I miss her voice & her calmness & her laughter & her advice & her intuition...
