While I was waiting for Elaine Houston to come and interview me, for her show Today’s Women, I did what made me the most comfortable, the thing that put me at ease and kept me centered. I made potholders. An Open Heart and A Strong Center is the first one I made. It’s what I wanted to feel while I was talking about my work. It’s what I wanted anyone who will see the interview to see in me.
Surprisingly, I wasn’t very nervous and once I started talking I could have gone on all day. I’m sure one of the reasons I was so comfortable, was because Elaine and the camera man were very nice and were genuinely interested in what I was saying and doing.
Elaine Houston has traveled the world making documentaries about women. She said so many of the news stories around women are about their hardships and she wanted to show the other side of the story. The positive and affirming and encouraging things that women are doing locally. So she’s fulfilling her passion by telling the stories of women who are living their passions. Oh, how grateful, how honored I am to be one of those stories.
My interview on Today’s Women will air in a couple of weeks, and I’ll be sure to let you know when and link to it so you can see it here.
