The Eternal Nature of Motherhood

020508, originally uploaded by dboo.

I saw this photo at Flickr a bit ago (via), as part of a pretty amazing photoset. The way this young mother smiles at her child is entrancing -- especially since the photo was apparently taken in 1971. That kid is my age, and the mother is probably somewhere around 60 years old now. No matter how much time passes, some things are just ingrained in the human species, no?

(What else strikes me is that very few of the fashions seen in this photoset strike me as absurd! I guess I am just a hippie, thirty years too late. Kind of like Jimmy Buffet's pirate....)
