i loved looking through the group shots of our super successful girly show and seeing us all staring at this little girl spinning till she was dizzy, and falling on the ground, and getting back up again with a silly smile and no problem. i guess that’s easier when you’re 3.
looking at her it dawned on me that we were the big girls; the women. those tall(er) folks that i used to look up to when i was wee at parties, art openings or weddings. how glamorous, i would think. and we were. basking in the limelight that is special to the feeling of glory that comes only after you have put many long months preparing a body of art for a show, planning logistics, a long day traveling, hanging the work, meeting new amazing women… loving these encounters and how it all works out just so.
i will be mentioning more of our show, but for today, i am looking up at us from this perspective. here are more photos from the girly show.
