"You are the splitting image of your mother." For as long as I remember I have heard these words. In the past few years we can also add,"You are so much like your mother". Who my mother is seems to have defined me as a person, as if I am not me but simply a reincarnation of my mother. As a result I was moved to recreate images of my mother from when she was my age. Through these images I strived to become my mother. Wear similar clothing, do similar things, and even think similar thoughts. However, what I soon came to find is what Ive always known. I am not my mother and never will be. Yet I cannot deny, the apple doesnt fall far from the tree.
