Honouring my International women

International women’s day focuses my memory on the amazing women that have touched and shaped my life.

Friedricke and Elise, both of you in different ways, taught me about unconditional love, discipline and inner strength.
Else you gave me permission to play and redefined being female.
Gertrude, my, so complex and sad, you forced me to learn patience and helped me understand "Blessed are the cracked for they let in the light."
Mrs. Woods you proved that a woman can have both – profound beauty and profound intellect, Karin you reconfirmed that.
Anna you redefined mothering and gave us all permission to do the same.

My greatest homage is to the women that I never met that mothered my mother’s mother’s mother…
I thank you.
