Listen to Your Mother Plumas County Gets a Cast

Whew. I want to go back to auditioning for things rather than planning out auditions and casting a show. But for now the first big hurdle is over. Ladies and Gentleman, we have a cast!

And how was this cast chosen? Not so easy in a small community where it is impossible not to know just about everyone. But more people have something to say about motherhood than you think.

One thing is for sure: No one can talk about mothering without the concept going forward and backward. So we have stories about how our mothers shaped us and shaped our parenting. We have dedications to our mothers who have gone before us, creating mothers where none existed, spiritual mothers, inner mothers, Mother Earth, and of course, our own experience of motherhood.

Check us out: Our Cast!
