~ I wonder if your mother awakened this morning thinking of you. I believe she did. After all, you were her son: the college hockey player, the great musician, the long distant runner, the one with the Master’s Degree.
And once upon a time, it’s hard to imagine, you swam inside her empty womb.
“She looks at me, and we both laugh, and in the instant we are merely two women, standing over a lasagna, telling the truth.” –Jodi Picoult, Small Great Things
~ I’m the kind of person who is interested.
~Today I am honored to be interviewing, Julie Anderson, creator of the empowering, unfiltered blog, Feminine Collective.
Without further ado, here is Julie!
—We chose a winner!
My Inner Chick’s team read and savored 74 submissions for our 2nd annual writing contest.
We valued and appreciated your raw words, honesty, authenticity, pain, and sharing your real-life, unbelievable, amazing stories with us.
What an honor to read all of them.
In particular, one story by Reut Amit, He Never Hit Me, caused us to rise up from our seats and yell:
“That’s the one!”
Without further ado, here it is.

~I am pleased to have my poem, You Rise, published on FEMININE COLLECTIVE today.
I fell upon this beautiful, empowering site about a year ago. The stories, intellect, insight, support, and poetry about women exuberate me. I suggest you check out more of the work on their pages!
Mercy ROCKS my world.
( This short observation was written by my dynamic, amazing, talented pen-pal, Mercy Adhiambo. She sends me her personal journals with several remarkable stories about her adventures in journalism, life, love, and insights about Kenya. I particularly appreciated and loved this one! She was about 20 years old when she wrote it.)
A wounded deer leaps the highest. – Emily Dickinson
