A Celebration of Women


Dear Friends....
In the spirit of International Women's Day,
a day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements
of women past, present and future.


I saw this painting today and wanted to send it to you.
I thought of all of us women, spread out across the seas,
writing to each other, providing support, laughter and comfort.
What a lucky lot we are!

I feel very lucky to be in such good company.
Thank you!


The painting above can be seen at the Courtauld Gallery in London. 
It is entitled The Parting of Ulysses by John Everett Millais c. 1862.

  1. I wasn't aware there was such a day...but it certainly is worth celebrating! Maybe I will hold off on all of that laundry I have and make a toast to how far we have come! ;-D

  6. Beautiful picture to illustrate your post so well. You're right, it does feel like we're waving to one another across the seas, but we do it well and yes it is worth celebrating.
    Hugs to you Jeanne
