I was invited to be part of a Writing and Creative Process Blog Tour by my Creative Girlfriend Ann Butler
Fast forward 30 years to when my mother died. The strangest thing happened. The day after we finished shiva ( Jewish mourning ritual usually lasting 7 days) I felt like I was hit by a lightning bolt and I could swear I could feel my mother's presence.
I felt a warmth envelope me and all of a sudden I blurted out to my husband, " I have to create!" I was not only filled with this need to create something, but I also had the confidence and belief that I could actually make something. I feel my mother has guided me and continues to be with me whenever I am creating.
