Mimi Hart Silver

I want to make a special post for a brilliant mind, artist and friend whose soul has left us. She held great wisdom even at a very young age. Here is my story of Mimi. It was my Senior year in high school. She was two years older than me and we grew up in… Continue reading Mimi Hart Silver

It’s been a long time but I know lots of women

Hello there! I have not blogged in over a year because I forgot how to login. We all have many passwords.

I call my Grandmothers every week. Talking on the phone to my Grandmothers is one of the sweetest gifts… Continue reading Kin, Ancestral Celebration
