The Yellow Skirt at Sunrise...and Mom

Here in Pao-land, the elders gather together during their transitional phase at a place called Sunrise.  It is settled in the middle of town, amongst all the liveliness a thriving metropolis has to offer.  It was there, then, the lady and her Yellow Skirt went to visit her one and only mother.

The Lady Accompanied by Her True Love at Sunrise

The great hall was festooned with the ancient symbols of a life celebrated whilst dying.  A tree cut down in its prime and ornamented.  Nature uprooted, brought indoors and be-ribboned along with tiny specks of colors twinkling day and night.

This is the scene our picture-makers reproduce most often, wherein the lady presents the Circle of Life to her Mother.

The Giving of the Wreath from Daughter to Mother


In actuality the Lady's Mother had made this Circle of Life her very self years ago, although she no longer remembers the fact. 

Check out those matching yellow socks!

The Lady's mother introduced Pao as her daughter to all those around her, and told everyone the story of the Yellow Skirt.  She was said to be very happy and repeated herself endlessly.  Afterward, Pao placed the Circle of Life on the front of her mother's door along with a photograph of this picture.  All who saw it smiled.


and yes, there's still more to come...

oh, and a gratuitous boot shot
...and I linked up with Sacramento's Share in Style Christmas here

  2. Wow. That's quite an honour for the skirt. In fact, it's an honour that you shared this special Christmas occasion even without the skirt. I feel the love in your words and the photos.
    I am happy to meet your mother, the original owner of the fabulous Kiss of the Spider Woman dress - I bet she looked like dynamite in it. And your true love is quite a handsome guy! What a beautiful photo of you together. I like the wreath reference as a Circle of Life.

    1. I hadn't seem my mom smile like that for a long time. She actually remembered the Yellow Skirt the next time I came to see her, although she didn't remember the photograph or the wreath.

  8. Wonderful post! And I like to contrast of mother-daughterly emotion with the bikerized TYS outfit. It looks great with a black jacket and boots, and the scarf is perfect!
