The Madonna written by my mother Patricia Moran, and I inherited it upon her death.
The Madonna is the story of childhood dreams lost and re-found. It is a brief snatch of a memory of a time when a young girl has found out all the things that grown-ups tell her she can’t be or do, and the magic has gone out of her life. Yet, she finds something that forever brings back her ability to believe in more than what we call the ordinary.
I labeled it fiction although I believe it to be a memory that my mother had of a day and time in her youth. Knowing my mother as I did, something like it could have happened.
Until the day she died, she believed that all things were possible.
