Here is a little visit in real time about caring for your creative in the summer time.
Plus, the winners to the drawing for copies of Little U are announced!
Many thanks for your wonderful comments on my Motherhood & Privilege post. If you missed it, go here.
Once again you have shown me a sliver of the diverse stories we each carry about motherhood, or not motherhood, but all reflecting the real time beauty of women’s lives. It is only in recent history that these stories have been recognized as valued. Here at Rising Forth, the value of women’s stories is celebrated daily, every time we turn to our journal or pick up a threaded needle to stitch, or caress a peach in anticipation of a pie. Being connected to our real lives means being connected to the ongoing stories that we live and the way we express what we know in the work that we do.
Just today, my daughter Catherine relayed a Jamaican saying she learned from the vice principal of the school where she is tutoring this summer.
“There is always one half of the story that needs to be told and that’s yours.”
PS As I type this post, the birds and chipmunks in my yard were going nutty. I looked up to see the back end of a Red Fox dissolving in to the hemlocks out in my backyard. xoxoS
Also, here is where you can find Catherine Anderson’s new Labyrinth book. Congratulations Catherine! xooxS
