SEASON OF MOTHERHOOD | part 2
Welcome to Artifact Motherhood. This is a collaboration of artists from around the world who have come together to share our stories of the joys and struggles in our journeys. Through our writings and photographs, we want to create memories that are more than photographs with dates written on the back. These are the artifacts we are leaving behind for our children and for generations to come.
The intention and idea for this months post as a group is creating one picture that represents your current journey/season of motherhood.
I thought to put a photo of us in masks, serious faces. Because a lot of days life feels like that for me. So many unknowns in our future. So much fear due to the fact that one of them is high risk. But to be honest it’s not that way for them. They’re together, at home. They’re running around our property, playing and imagining things that inspire me daily. They’re flourishing. And so I need to focus on that; their experience in this pandemic is truly what matters. On Mother’s Day, after a hike with our goats, I requested they take a few photos with me. They were silly and hilarious and this photo was our outcome – and I cherish it so much. <3
