Eventful Day

This morning I spoke on “Celebrating Women,” at the 18th Annual Women Veterans Health Conference at the VA Hospital in Brooklyn. Here a picture of one of the veterans showing me her portfolio of amazing art work–wood carvi

ngs, paintings, sculptures. I have a video of our conversation that I’ll post later. Thank you to Catherine Nadal, Women’s Veterans Program Manager, who invited me to speak. (click on pic for larger image) Afterwards I drove to a section of Brooklyn that’s been on my list of “women’s history site to visit” for a long time–Gravesend, a permanent colonial settlement founded by a woman–Lady Deborah Moody in 1645(the date the Dutch granted her the town patent). A religious dissenter, Lady Moody had been dubbed a “dangerous woeman” by the Puritan leaders in Massachusetts, who had expelled her. In the town she founded, people were granted religious freedom and women could vote. From there I drove home, change clothes and returned to NYC to picked up Sophie. I’m driving, she’s telling me about school, when suddenly she says: “Grammy, I remember when your hair was brown.”
