I can’t stand hearing people say they hate their mothers (for petty reasons). Appreciate the fuck out of your moms. There is no one out there who will love you even a shred as much as your mother does. I love my mom more than anything in the universe, more than any words could ever say because our memories together have built such an intricate (and a lot of the time quite insane) web that no words could ever make sense of. Appreciate the fuck out of your moms because shit fucking happens, amazing people get sick, people’s lives are stolen from underneath them for no good reason whatsoever. Appreciate the fuck out of your moms because I didn’t while I was young and she healthy. Appreciate the fuck out of your moms because my mother can’t even bear to get out of bed most days, let alone do all the things she wants to do to make my life better, simply because it makes her happy, but can’t. And suffers because of it. Appreciate the fuck out of your moms and tell her every god damn chance you get how much you do because you never know when will be your last.

Illustrations by Carmel Seymour
With her watercolor/crayon illustrations, Carmel Seymour is delving into the boundless realm of imagination. Carmel herself describes her art as ‘Feeling the mystery of the world, the way you do without all the answers.’ With that in mind, it’s no wonder we find comfort within the whimsy of her brushstrokes and pencil shadings. In her art, we don’t have to know the answers, we don’t have to know the ending, it’s all about the journey, the story, the narrative.
