What if you only had six months to live? That’s a scary proposition. It’s also freeing and surreal when you realize how short life truly is. Being passionate and embracing strong beliefs can be the unexpected gifts of brevity.
The Museum of Motherhood has been a ‘love’ project. In six months, on March 31st, our lease at the Dunhill in New York City, sponsored by Deb Whitefield and Barry Hanson, is officially up.
The museum experiences will go into a book, 'Introduction To Mother Studies' workshops will continue, we are tapping friends for ideas, talking to universities and real estate brokers, and creating traveling exhibits, but essentially – this project, in the space at 401 East 84th Street will be over very soon.
Time waits for no one. All great things are impermanent. Even things that appear formidable eventually dissipate. In the meantime there is still plenty of BANG in M.O.M.
Just see the amazing people on our advisory board, notice the incredible women we’re honoring this year at our first Hall of Fame awards ceremony, as we celebrate our 8th Annual Conference on March 6, 7and 8, 2014 and please, if you have a lead, send it our way. Mostly – Keep the faith. I do, every day. Joy Rose

|Stay inspired. Do whatever you have to do to remember you are here for a reason. Find your sense of purpose as if your time on earth is limited, because it is. Go to sleep each night knowing that today 'you did the best you job could', whatever that job is, given whatever limitations you have. Stay in the light. Spread peace. |
