Disney…escape from Charlottesville

by Cat on August 18, 2017

It’s been a long hiatus from this blog… I’ve been busy with my stationery line at Ferme à Papier, and illustrated a book on Paris!  So what prompted me to start blogging on Mom Inc Daily again? Charlottesville did… The fog I have found myself in and the questions that my eight year old poses to me have left me speechless. Are there KKK at Disney Mom? Can I fire an astro blaster at them? I was whirling around the Mad Teacups at Disney this past week when the news was blazing about our President’s responses. I have to admit it, being caught up in Disneyland fanfare felt about the safest place to be at the time.

Today the arts and humanities committee resigned from Trump’s administration. This committee held some of my favorite authors and artists including Jhumpa Lahiri and Chuck Close. They wrote paragraphs with letters that spelled out RESIST. And this has been weighing heavily on my mind as well. We have asked this questions in my creative women’s groups endlessly. How does a women of color, a mother, a creative and artist (that’s me) resist? How have or will you? I hope we can explore this together.

I’ll still be here to post mom-life and the creative…as this, the creative world and expression and everyday motherhood have saved me over and over again in times of crisis and joy. But I will be here to post about my new endeavors, collectives for women makers to support domestic abuse and discrimination via Saving Faces and our We the Women campaign using art as a vehicle to make change. I invite you to enlighten me with your world and what you are doing with it or want to do with it!

My best, Cat
