When I read about Wendy Davis, the Texas Legislator who filibustered for 13 hours I was inspired. Here’s this woman, a single mom who got herself through collage and into Harvard, literally standing in her truth. For 13 consecutive hours Wendy Davis not only stood on her on her feet, but talked about the issue of proposed abortion restrictions, without a break, never leaning against a table, not eating, not going to the bathroom. I felt what she did was heroic. I’m a believer in standing in my truth and Wendy Davis touched on one of my truths. So when I saw that she was wearing pink sneakers though the whole thing, my muse kicked in.
Today I’ll spend the day making Pink Sneaker Potholders (I can see by this mornings news, I’m not alone, the pink sneakers have already become a symbol). My goal is to make 10, but I’ll see how many I can get done. I’ll be selling them and donating a portion of the proceeds to Planned Parenthood.
