"I have found that in the decades of patriarchal dominance, the stories of and about and by women who mother are nearest the bottom of the human interest pile. Women in most professions have had to work around motherhood in order to succeed or opt-out of motherhood in order to succeed and a very few have had the privilege of leaning-in in order to succeed, but it is never easy and never without massive sacrifice, mess and some of the time, transforming joy." #motherhood #womenwriters

These three adorable screech #owls are rehab birds because of trauma to their eyes, which is an important part of their ability to hunt prey like mice, insects and lizards. The owls -- an Eastern screech owl on the left and two Western screech owls on the right -- were part of Bird Fest 2015 at #SantaMonicaMountains National Recreation Area, a day to celebrate and educate the public about birds. Wings of Discovery, a rehabilitation center nearby @santamonicamountainsnps in Agoura Hills, #California, is caring for these owls. Photo by #NationalPark Service. by usinterior

I wonder if you realize that the value of what you make, of the way you give care?
I write and make a lot of stuff. Some of it sees the light of day. Some of stays put deep inside my journals. Some of it brews for later exposure. photo credit by Lee Irwin Some stuff I make gets drunk by other people, or eaten, or tipped in t [...]

#Quest2016 is one of my Packs of collaborative business artists who assure me I am not out on the web alone, blogging and marketing my offers to the wide open prairie of the internet. I found them thanks to the Art Mark program run by +Jeffrey Davis and +Cathy Shap. With Art Mark I made significant progress developing my presence online and am continuing to move forward in affiliation with a great group of professionals.
Just because you can access so much software & info does not mean you should or can build your venture alone. Jeffrey Davis explains why DIT Beats DIY.

During nearly all hours of the day, our studios hummed like apiaries, each of us picking up the pollen of one anothers creative energy. Time was honey-rich. We were carried forward in to new dimensions of our work, by virtue of this mutual generation of creative spirit.

I enjoy making and listening to music. All sorts. But improv is my "first love".

Introduction

 

Suzi Banks Baum grew up on the shores of the Great Lakes in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. She spent the early part of her professional life as a theatre artist in New York City. She writes, makes art, jam and tends her garden as a full time mom with her husband and two teenaged children in the Berkshire Mountains of western Massachusetts. Suzi is a contributing blogger at the Museum of Motherhood and maintains her own website at www.laundrylinedivine.com.

An artist her entire life, she began making collages with Life magazine images at four and had her first theatrical success playing a rat in the Pied Piper of Hamelin at age seven. Suzi’s artistic collaboration of postal art can be seen at www.femailart.com.

Suzi Banks Baum is a wild soul shining through the form of a country wife and mom. She infuses her days with creativity, art, and unparalleled celebration of the divine magic of everyday life.
