Meet, Meera Shaw, she's is battling cancer and is one of the original 5 members of the Secret Dream Skirt Society. As soon as she started loosing her hair to chemo she started dressing however she wanted, finally feeling she'd earned the right to do as she pleased. She started writing love notes to herself all over her clothes, her shirts, her jeans, and on her skirts. In honor of her, but not always able to dress that way at their places of business her 4 best friends made their own skirts and slips and bloomers, and wore them around under their work clothes, and the Society was born. Meera is now doing well and continues to dress however she pleases. She's taken to wearing bright scarves even though her hair is coming back in.
Meera's daughter, Shayleen is 6 years old and she loves dressing like Mommy and even wanted to cut her hair off too. The pair make quite the show when they go out to dinner together and to the parks. Timothy, her husband, the quiet artistic type just sits back on the bench smiling at the two of them and their antics. He just keeps thinking to himself he is the luckiest man alive to have them both, right now, right here.Tomorow may change things butbright now he's happy.
Meera's favorite flower is the tulip and Timothy always kept her hospital room and her bedroom filled with tulips in pots. In an unrealistically, almost movie like dipslay of timing, the tulips that he planted all over their yard for her in the fall, bloomed the day she came home from her last day of chemo treatment!
The original 5 members were also part of an sketchbook group where they would head out for an hour or two and sketch together then eat of course. So here's some pics of one of their travel watercolor kits.
