Power of the matriarchs
Because I come from Leah, my great grandmother who ran away from the police in the middle of the night coming to “arrest” her and her elderly husband to send them to concentration camp. She figured she had nothing to lose. She survived. And from her daughter Rosza, who was one of the toughest, smartest women I ever met- absolutely fearless. And from her daughter Lea, my mother, who learned how to fly a plane and skydive at age 50, because she’d always wanted to fly - who never said no to an invitation to celebrate- anything- and who found “it” all endlessly fascinating and wild.
Power of the matriarchs.
