An ode to some minivans, and the woman who drove them
Lakshmi, What a healing essay?! It triggered so many memories of the cars that people drove me in as a child. Thank you for writing this.
Laki, this is so beautiful. It takes me right to the back seat of those vans that so perfectly encapsulate your mom's spirit.
What a lovely tribute. This brings so much back alive for me. Thank You and Best Wishes Always.
My dear Josie, my mentor in all directions of life. I reamber all my trips with you in your car. You were the one who taught me what bumper stickers are...Miss you but you are always in my ❤
This brought me to tears. Thank you for sharing this.
Lakshmi. I forgot to hit send on the text u sent me. You’re writing about mom brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. I remember so much filling that car is gas tanks following her with the girls in one car or the other, seeing it in the parking lot at Peninsula, so much joy. Mama was And is a special wonderful woman who I hold is sacred. Thank you so much for writing that miss you girl. Where are you on the planet right now? Love you deeply
