Happy Mother’s Day

Hello ! Renxkyoko Iglesias here.

 

In all the years I have been blogging here, this is the first time  I have posted on Mother’s Day.  It’s so ironic because my  mother is my very best friend in the world, and we have  been together so much I feel I have become like her. I have come to like her kind of music (  LedZep, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, ie, classic rock ) , her politics, her civic consciousness, even her taste in movies and books (  mystery, thriller , crime stories , and believe it or not, musicals ) so much so that I ended up majoring in forensics.  She is a recycling Nazi. I am, too. She loves the arts..,.. my sister had her piano lessons, went to a ballet school…. I had my violin and tap dancing lessons , as well. ( I readily quit the tap dancing thing… Eh ! ) She did her own thing , too.  She took up  ballroom dancing and  brought   me and my sister to her dancing lessons and we watched in awe middle aged ladies dancing with so much gusto it was almost embarrassing…. I remember one who looked like she was 100 years old dancing with handsome young  DIs ( Dance Instructors). Mom had her own favorite DI . ( Uhm, hi , Dad, nothing went on there, I assure you , he he ) Don’t get me wrong. My Mom was not a social butterfly. She was  a political and social activist who fought bravely and without fear the brutal Marcos dictatorhip and kleptocracy  in the Philippines.  Read about it here.  She was, in fact,  on the list of people who would get arrested just before The People Power Revolution happened, literally saved by the bell. (  My sister and brother  were shuttled from one house to another to keep them safe …. so  yes, it was like that ……. her activities were definitely not a walk in the park )

 

These are the only available photos that I have on WordPress.  She looks like my sister. I look like Dad.
