Sadie, Virginia & Ann
Altered Book - Women
I received a really nice email yesterday, from an artist friend that I met 3 years ago, who lives on the other side of the planet. She got me to thinking about the women I know and so I decided to journal about the women that I came from... on my mother's side...my great grandmother, Sadie (Sarah) and her daughter, my grandmother, Virginia...who died before my mother, Ann, was married. My mother told me a few stories about them as I was growing up, but it's not the same as knowing them...and yet...they are where I came from. I wish I knew more about them...what exactly did we have in common besides our DNA? Well, one thing I know...I got the "not so great" math gene from my mother judging from her 4th grade report card. But I also know that I got her creative gene...which I am very thankful for.
