A friend of mine sent me a link to the film trailer above of the award-winning Who Does She Think She Is? directed by Pamela Tanner Boll. The documentary focuses on five women artists -- who are also mothers-- and their struggle to balance the call of the muse with the demands of nuturing their children. It looks wonderful and I am hoping that it will eventually make its way to Tucson. (The blog does offer information on current screenings around the country). I so remember the hard and often strange road of being a writer and raising children at the same time. I can't quite recall how I juggled it all...though I do remember feeling both exhausted and exhilarated by the effort.
(Thanks to Karen for the link!)
