Motherhood Right Now

posted on: October 18, 2017


Motherhood right now is dinner parties with wild three year olds, upbeat playlists, paper shredded in their room for future pretend orders that include eggs Benedict, white rice and coffee. It is conversations on parenthood, pressures of womanhood, bodies, paid maternity leave, healthcare, responsibilities, and thought provoking conversation starters about the true definition of equivalent partnerships and the glorification of motherhood etc...

In Conversation...

Last Saturday, my friend Rubi Jones and I hosted a little gathering that sparked a thought-provoking conversation about the inner workings of style, beauty, and hair. We had wine and cheese, and I ate my weight in olives. Right before we arrived, we ducked into a local bar I used to visit before I had River, and had a pre-conversation conversation that left me in tears.

It was a time to show that these conversations aren't only reserved for women who we know through and through, but they can be threaded between strangers given the opportunity.

There's an undeniable magic, frustration, and freedom that is wrapped in the NYC subway system. It is one in which I have grown up to know. The connections and stops are etched into my skin and has created a map into my bones. But it is not simply knowing and loving the unpredictable system, it is what is unknown about those who ride it. 

As someone who has always been drawn to stories, and has found herself entranced in ones she's created or has experienced in the subway system, Andre Wagner's book, Here For The Ride, is powerful and beautiful. With a single image, he tells these in-depth stories that live with strap hangers, women, men, and children alike that ride the machine day in and day out.

Here are a few more photographs from the book...
