 Pages Of A Woman's Soul


Dedicated to one of the most amazing, independent, authentic women I have ever met...
my friend and Yiddishe mama, Annette Wexler

Beautiful Woman,
Strong Inspiration,
Feminist ahead of
your time…

What were your thoughts
the first time
you stepped out of
your comfort zone?

In an era when
an independent woman
was seen as an enigma,
an unfortunate aberration…

How did you survive?

When so many other women
were living lives of quiet
desperation and conformity,

you found your voice
and used it

you turned your back
on others' expectations

you educated your mind
and became
someone new

you followed your passion
finding success along the path

you became the kind of woman,
no, the kind of PERSON
that others are drawn
to emulate

Others like me.

I've read your
shimmering words,
seen your proud
felt your anguish,
and your immense
love toward all
of life.

And so, Beautiful Woman
Strong Inspiration
Feminist and Heroine

you must be thanked
and I do.

For us all.
