Book Club - i'm just a person by Tig Notaro

"She was bold and uninhibited, and didn't care what anybody thought of her."

"I found myself doing and saying things that I never did or said when my mother was conscious, like running my hand over her hair and forearms and kissing her forehead.  I didn't feel like my mother heard or felt me, but I wished desperately for her to know that I was there with her, that I was doing everything she had ever wanted me to do and saying everything she had ever wanted to hear me say."

"Halfway through my show, I took a beat, realizing that this was a really special moment in my life that would never come again."
