Post WDS, Part 2 (craving creative cohorts)

I'm a slow processor.

It takes me awhile to fully take in an experience. Heck, I've been married for 5 years to the guy I've been with for 13, and I'm just starting to get use to and love it.

So it's no wonder that a month later, I'm getting to my     post-World Domination Summit, Part 2.  Here's Part 1, if you missed it.

In between the male-oriented things at World Domination Summit like "conquering fear," I saw a great film called Indie Kindred. It's a documentary by Brooklyn-based writer and storyteller, Jen Lee and chronicles 10 female independent artists and their forays into creative collaborations with other female artists.

What I loved about Indie Kindred is that it very much spoke to my longing at World Domination Summit for feminine ways of relating (not dominating or conquering). I remember the film ending and thinking "Finally! This is what I've been wanting here."

The film also spoke to my craving for creative cohorts. I've been lucky to have a few in my life. For example, I love to create meals with my mother in her kitchen. I love making art with my friend Susanna. There's something so powerful in discovering resonance with another person ... and using that shared resonance to play and create.
