Derani, age 50 / New York, USA


My mother was scared of me. I was cooking, and I cut myself – ‘cause I was always the cook in the family. And I rinsed my hand off, and she went to put a band-aid on, and I went like this, and she jumped… You know, I love my mom, and until today she denied it. But you know, we know. I know. That cut me a little bit. Cut my heart.
