I'm not the only one!
This is probably the first gathering of women I've been in where I don't feel awkward for not being a mother. Yes, I've been asked a couple of times if I have children, but then when I said no, they just changed the subject. The other woman changed the subject, not me! I've even had conversations with a couple of women about their pets, and though I never asked, I just know they don't have their own children because like typical crazy dog/kitty people they just went on and on about their dogs. We actually talk about our work, our passion as filmmakers and artists. How wonderful it was to step out of daily lives to attend this workshop. Imagine that! The mentor director, though a mother, talked bringing her children with her when she travelled for work, but being a mother was not the sole reason for her being. Her passion for her work was what she talked about. Wow, okay, gotta run!
