I find myself thinking about my mother a lot these days, and the best thing I know to do with all that rumination is to write it down.
“Lena and the Bank of America” draws on memories sifted through time. I’m delighted that the fine journal Lunch Ticket has chosen it for publication. Link to it here.

A warm and carefully-drawn portrait. Congratulations on the Lunch Ticket placement.
This is a lovely piece. It has so many layers. I feel you missing your mother. And I see her – so clearly. I’m very glad you wrote this.
Can’t we all identity with these feelings when remembering our mothers? It’s healing to have Alice articulate them.
