You really should also watch “Lost In Living.” We had an ExMo MeetUp where we watched the film and discussed it afterwards. It’s thought provoking. The film will screen for free here at 4PM starting today, Friday.

We are all women who enjoy being both creative and being mothers and don’t think it has to stop just because we became mothers. Or else we’d go crazy. Some of us literally perhaps.
I’m excited to share our latest show with you online. For those of you from far away you’ll be able to see a whole show.
Plan a get together with your friends, watch it and talk about what’s going on in your own lives that relate.
Our hashtag is #exmoshow.
Looking forward to sharing part of Mother’s Day Weekend with you.
Our live streaming will start Friday May 9th at 4PM PST. So you East Coasters can start watching it at 7PM your time.

Mary Trunk directed the documentary “Lost In Living” and I’ve been wanting to see it.

So, I’m hosting a screening.

Behind the domestic curtain of motherhood, where the creative impulse can flourish or languish, are four women determined to make a go of it. Filmed over seven years, Lost In Living, confronts the contradictions inherent in personal ambition and self-sacrifice, female friendship and mental isolation, big projects and dirty dishes. The complex realities of family life unfold in this documentary film about the messy intersection of motherhood and artistic expression.

Tickets just opened up for the small event. For $8 I’ll give you dinner, some wine, you can watch her film and connect with other creative moms around Los Angeles. The screening will be on the East Side, location will be emailed to you once you have bought your ticket.
