It’s my pleasure to host Magdalena Scott, a new friend of mine and a creative author! Here’s Magdalena’s memory of her creative mom:
“If I were to choose one word to describe my mother, it would be “creative.” She was an artist who preferred oil paint or pastels over watercolors, she designed and sewed her own clothes and mine, as well as gifts for others. She knitted and crocheted, refinished and upholstered furniture. (She was “upcycling” decades before the term was coined.) She even cut, colored, and styled her own hair.
When she moved from Los Angeles with my dad back to his midwestern hometown a few years before I was born, she used her creativity too. My dad was among people he’d known his whole life, but my mother made her own connections as well. They were a wonderful team in projects (building or buying and rehabbing houses), in parenting (after 20 years of marriage–surprise! I arrived), and in community.
My mother died in 2001 after suffering with Alzheimer’s Disease for several years. I completed my first full-length novel that year, but she was gone before it was published.
On Mother’s Day or at any other time, it is my hope that I honor both my parents by being the person they raised me to be. Creativity is part of my inheritance–what a gift!”–Magdalena
