This is a photograph of my grandmother Gurjiyi, my mother, Sabiha and her young sister Suad.

The photograph was taken in Baghdad, perhaps somewhere around 1927. 

My grandmother sewed all her clothes and the clothes of her children, and  here you see they are all wearing the same fabric.

My mother’s table was always full.

She is now gone. So now I ask, how do I perpetuate it?

This a gateway to the next generation of The Perpetual Table.
