Imagine A Woman

I am behind in reading the posts on this blog and checking the links for progress reports, photos, etc. I enjoy it immensely and try to take a tour every day of all the new creations. When I am not able to get here for a few days - it seems I fall so far behind, but find the catch up so much fun. Yesterday I spent a couple of hours reading posts, checking blogs... Wow, what a wonderful way to spend a few hours. I am so inspired and touch by so many of the pieces, the feelings that go into them and even the struggles that have been overcome. I do not know that I can quite articulate it in a way that adequately describes the feelings evoked. It is a good thing for sure - that I recognize. And it feels so big. So many wonderful people from so many different places - all the new bloggers (me being one of them). I find it simply awesome.

This has been a wonderful journey for me so far - to watch, and even more to be able to call myself a participant. And to think we are really just at the beginning. I am so excited to see what the rest of the year will hold.

Anyway - the whole point of this post is that I had a thought yesterday while reading the posts - or really more of a feeling regarding this group, I was reminded of a poem I have carried around with me and shared with many of my girlfriends over the years. This seemed the perfect place to share it (sorry Thom, it is about women only).

You can find it here

What a beautiful poem.
I, too have been touched by the stories that have inspired the work. And I have been inspired by the courage of this group. You are right so much has happened in this first month already.
By next May I think we will all be in a place of celebration.

Grace thank you so much.
Today I started a special journal.
I printed out that poem to go in my journal.
Thank you again and again for posting that link.
I too have been so touched by this project. I am not an "official" member, but I still feel very much a part of it all. I too wonder what it will be like in a few months.
