Haley on a Mother's Day morning

A smaller group of artists gathered yesterday at the Arts and Letters Club on Elm Street 
due to a marathon on Yonge Street and it being Mother's Day and all.  I made it there 20 minutes late due the numerous detours I encountered trying to cross Yonge Street from the east. But traffic chaos aside, the company was good, the model was lovely and it made for a most peaceful and in-the-zone Mother's Day morning.
A very happy belated Mother's Day to mothers and all those other wonderful people who nurture others!
