Days of Gratitude for Out of the Mouths of Babes

Sou and SBB

Can you blame me for taking a break from posting this week?
I am just barely digesting the riot of light that we stirred up last Friday evening.
The authors of Out of the Mouths of Babes: An Evening of Mothers Reading to Others and An Anthology of Babes: 36 Women Give Motherhood a Voice captured the audience
at Dewey Historic Hall in Sheffield with their open hearted, brave readings.

I will be posting photos here all week and you, my dear reader, can capture a
bit of the glow of this event and just how it landed in all of our lives.
I appreciate all your good wishes and your own creativity which inspires me always.

I had the great good fortune of my friend, poet, artist and delight, Sou McMillan traveling from
Wooster with her husband to be with us on Friday night. Not only did Sou contribute to both the blog series and book, but she cast her editorial eyes on pieces of the book as I wrote it.

“I get by with a little help from my friends”. Thank you Sou. Here is a post at her blog.

This friendship includes art making and book writing and fun having.

The Berkshire Festival of Women Writers has a steady line-up of events this month. I will be at Kripalu on Thursday to hear Julia Cameron speak. The anthology is on sale in the Kripalu Gift Shop or here on LLD at this sales page.

Happy March 5!

    I feel your glow all the way to the frozen north! It’s actually melting the snow.

    Dear Suzi – your words are always filled with kindness and love and the kindred spirit of friendship. I am over the moon to have been included in your anthology. Friday night surpassed the Oscars! I have been buying the book and handing it out to family and friends as if the book was candy at Halloween. The feedback is that all are moved to laughter and tears by all the wonderful stories. I now need to buy a few more!

    All the very best –

    I have been waiting with bated breath to hear and see and experience your favorite frames and brags from your event! I love this photo of you — so gorgeous and glowy and in your pleasure. That ruby red color looks amazing on you. So does creative accomplishment. 🙂 I adore you and wish you major congratulations!
