"women are brave"

[artwork by Fae Ordaz]   

I'm always nervous before giving a public talk.  Not throw-up-in-the-bathroom-nervous, but jittery, spacey, not connecting with the rest of the world, self-conscious-nervous.  Today I was speaking at the O'Keeffe museum, in the Education Annexe - and so the walls were covered with all kinds of different art projects from their summer programs.  I took enormous heart from the zines that a group of young women had been making and their affirmative statements - this part of an image (top right on the near wall, below) by Fae Ordaz really spoke to me, for obvious reasons.  My thanks go out to her ...
