On March 8, we will spend a couple hours painting, creating a new story from the old stories that the Critic tells us, luring our Muse out of hiding, with tea, chocolate and paint. Returning to one’s self after a long voyage into the desert is the work all beings must do one day. Elmari will provide a map for the returning. Did you know, paintbrushes are magic wands?

International Women’s Day — March 8 — is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day, first celebrated in 1911, also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The official International Women’s Day hashtag and theme is #EachforEqual and “An equal world is an enabled world.”

The challenge of that day is to stand against stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.
