I will leave for later explaining what motherhood and creation mean for me. Referring to what we are cooking now, it was not until a month ago that, in La Ilusionista podcast, was proposed a writing exercise about a city that has marked us deeply.
Inspired by the wonderful Carlota Garrido, I ventured eagerly to write my story with Berlin and how I found and rediscovered myself there after two years of intense motherhood and breastfeeding.
After finishing writing the story, I realized how long I had wanted to express it in some way. Even while writing it I discovered new tones in that experience. Looking at it with perspective, I was aware that I needed to use that experience to create.
Then I thought of my friends and colleagues, and the comments and messages I receive every time I share my creative process with a little hand getting in the way. 'Just like me' 'How do you do it?' 'When do you find the time?' 'You remind me of myself'
I understood that we are 'eager' to share our experience as mother-artists and also to listen and see those of our colleagues in a constructive way.
And the idea traveled here, taking time from where there is none to create this space where we can ask ourselves questions that we are willing to answer and above all that inspire us for creation and learning.
As I said, there is room for all of us.
