While one of the forces behind SexyFeminist was playing her first rock show (that’s me) the other was bringing new life into the world. Our own Heather Wood Rudulph welcomed a gorgeous baby boy into the world — and let’s face it, that’s a really dumb way of saying it. She brought that kid into the world, with all kinds of sweat and tears and muscles I plan as a childless lady to continue not to think about, and that is a stunning feat. She won’t want to get too earth-mothery about it and act like she’s the first person to ever perform the amazing act of giving birth, but I sure find myself in awe of it today. I know women do it all the time, but it’s different when it’s your best friend and business partner having her first kid. I feel confused and humbled and proud when I see the pictures of her new baby. I knew it was coming, and yet … wow. This is it: Life.
If I do say so myself, I’m impressed with SexyFeminist and all of her diversity today: We are all rockstars. We are all women. We can all do really cool and amazing and seemingly impossible stuff. Soak in the Oprah moment.
