What's next for #365FeministSelfie

How do you go from being surrounded by people who love and respect you all weekend and return to work the next day? Well you get a migraine. Reentry is hard! Not to say that the students I get to work with don't respect me, but there was magic happening in Salon B of the Holiday Inn.

The idea to get together at two retreats was not my idea, one crackerjack member of this project, Cara, was truly the brains behind making Portland and Columbus happen. I think she willed these two gatherings together. Others did volunteer to make it happen and I pulled my weight too, but I really can't thank Cara enough for making it happen. As I told her in Portland, I didn't think it would happen. People would get busy, budgets would bust, etc, etc. But nope. We had 24 lovely women gather in a conference room and talked feminism all weekend. It could only had been better if we were all getting massages. At least we were coloring as you can see above!

If you are one of those people who don't like selfies, sorry, not sorry to report that we're selfieing our way into 2016! We also want to hold at least one retreat in 2016, so start saving the change you have in your pockets every day. More details as I figure them out!

Until then, I leave you with my latest at The Broad Side...a tiny listicle of the women of Prime Minister Trudeau's cabinet.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
