* The purpose of our documentation is to provide a window into the creative process and the interactions within our circle. It keeps the memory of our work together alive and offers a touchstone to revisit later for further reflection by the facilitators, the parents and the children.

Women are the primary resource of the planet. They give birth, we come from them. They are mothers, they are visionaries, they are the future. If we can figure out how to make women feel safe and honor women, it would be parallel or equal to honoring life itself."

Announcement: A Mighty Kindness

So let us rather not be sure of anything, 
Beside ourselves, and only that, so   
Miraculous beings come running to help...  

We shall be saying finally,  
With tremendous eloquence, Lead us.  
When we have totally surrendered to that beauty,  
We shall be a mighty kindness.  - Rumi

Dear Mighty Miraculous Beings,

Our August Session of Mighty Girl Art is near full, but we still have some room at our magical Mighty Creative Adventure: Mother & Daughter retreat in July!  Please help us spread the word....

Hope to see you 'round the fire!

Stay Awhile: Stickwork

Around me the trees stir in their leaves
and call out, “Stay awhile.”
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, “It’s simple,”
they say, “and you, too, have come
into the world to do this, to go easy,
to be filled with light, and to shine.”  

- Mary Oliver

Dear Mighty Girls,

It was about 30 yrs ago when I happened upon the work of sculptor Patrick Dougherty and was instantly enthralled.  As a young girl who liked to play in the woods, climb trees, and build things like forts and tree houses - Patrick's work touched that part of me and transported me to a time when anything I could imagine was real.  It was my wish that one day I would help him build an installation.

In February I heard that Mr. Doughtery was coming to Reston to create an installation and I could hardly believe it.  I immediately contacted GRACE and volunteered to be on his team.   Long story, short, for the last three weeks I've been living my dream atop a scaffolding bending sticks.  It has been an extraordinary experience for which I am very VERY grateful.

I would like to invite all of you to join us at the celebration in Reston Town Square Park on Saturday April 25th!!! 

Family Activities 2pm- 5pm

Opening Reception 5pm - 7pm

Below are some photos of the creation in process.  I hope you enjoy them.  May these words and images inspire you to dream big.  Dream so big that you can't fit it all in one photograph!!!
