Mary Kay...my Mom.
I've always been a mama's boy, I wrote earlier about my past problems communicating with my Dad, so it's no surprise, really.
One of the gifts she gave me was my love of games and gaming. My brother and I constantly played board games with Mom when we both very small, and one of the interesting facets is that she often made up the rules. In many ways, that was the prototype for my interest in game designs.
Mom made sure that I had a great childhood and was able to remain a kid as long as I wanted. In many ways, even in high school, I'd come home to a lovingly crafted sanctum for my toys, dreams, and imagination, of which my Mom was the architect.
Its hard to list specific moments, because Mom made sure that everyday was an adventure in one way or another.
Thank you Mom, for not being afraid to let my imagination soar.
