    My mom is my smart woman. When I was growing up, she always told me to make sure that I had the skills to support myself without depending on a man (or anyone else, really, but I believe she was referring in particular to not being trapped in a marriage). I have two daughters now, and I’m going to make sure that they get that message too.

    Wangari Maathai, a Pulizer Prize winner! She is an inspiration to us all. I admire her for her work in and on issues around environmentalism, women’s rights and politics both within her own country and continent and at a global level.

    My mom is such a smart woman. She is a retired teacher, and has always supported my decisions in life. She proof reads the drafts of my books, she has the best marketing ideas I have ever heard and while some of them are nuts – they are always unique and actually work!
    She has also taught me that loving and supporting my friends and family can be a very smart thing to do indeed, reaping the best rewards of all.
    Love you mom x

    not sure if yesterday’s blackout was responsible or if my post just got lost in cyberspace but here it is again- hopefully it sticks this time.
    My smart woman is my mother. She raised four kids and worked full-time back when that wasn’t the norm.
    She taught me that if things don’t go my way then to not take it personally “it’s not raining on you, it’s just raining out. It’s your job to come up with a workaround. Get an umbrella or stay indoors (proverbially).”
    She also said to “do things for the sake of doing things not for the sake of getting it done.” If you are going to bake a cake or sweep the floor or do your homework, etc don’t focus on it being over so you can accomplish the next task. You won’t do it right, do it well or learn that way. It was her version of the modern “be present” or “in the moment”.
    She had lots of these smart adages that I think about and utilize to this day. I have a son and a daughter- I hope to set the same good example for them and one day be “smart” in their eyes.

And we can get this project completed in time for Montclair's sesquicentennial when we can stick a fork into historic preservation as a public policy.
