It’s a New Year (A Blog Post by NURTURE – now 2 1/2 yrs. old)

May 9, 2013

Phew! I’m tired. I’ve traveled the country during these past two years; gone to Canada (Toronto) and am now enjoying the sun in California for the summer.

I can’t believe some of the marvelous reactions I’ve received during my various exhibitions. Here are some of the latest:

Awesome exhibit. Thank you. – Anonymous

Beautiful and inspiring. I am a 35 year old single mom and love seeing the different families. – Anonymous

I can hardly wait to see this exhibit and am delighted that I am a member of the JCC, so that I can easily go more than once. – Bev

NURTURE is a wonderful celebration of mothers in midlife. Cyma Shapiro has done a remarkable job celebrating this stage of life. – Karin

Just saw it — it is GREAT! The gallery is perfect, just beside the front entrance doors and facing the front desk — it is like a waiting room, almost, overlooking the street outside. Constant parade of people going by and while I was there at least a dozen came into the gallery. The room is clean and modern with an island of seating in the middle — so a lot of people just come into the gallery to sit and wait for someone, and end up looking at the exhibit…Most of all, it is absolutely inspirational. I was bawling away several times. It is possible I’m inspired enough to have a few more children. The photos are beautiful and the stories are so different. It is wonderfully done. – AH

I’ve got to… tell all of my (midlife mother) friends to see it! – Anonymous

Sometimes I could cry for joy that we’ve been seen, heard and are (hopefully) making a difference. Other times, I’m frustrated by the lack of speed at which this is happening. I guess that’s true of anything in its infancy, especially when it’s a “first,” like me!

In the end, I’m so happy that there’s space for me in this world and someone to share my life with. Thanks to all of you who have expressed interest,   supported me, and taken the time to (come by and) see me. I look forward to more joyous reunions…and greater disucssions about it all.
