When a woman hides her true thoughts and feelings because she fears it might elicit a negative reaction, she buries her creative passion. Such is the transformative power of memoir - casting aside the worry about judgment and putting truth in words. Only then can a woman's creative spirit spring forth from the shadows.
Today the window opened - a crack for some, and more for others - as to who we are. A woman's creative life can't be eroded when she steps out of the shadows and breaths in cool, clean air. From there, the window can only be flung wide open.
