The Sister Projeck
February 18, 2009
It’s a funny idea for a website, The Sister Project. At first glance, it seems so particular, so specific. But it’s about sisters the way some knitting blogs aren’t really all that much about knitting . . .
The zookeepers of this place, Margaret Roach and her sister (of course) Marion Roach Smith, have created a place with plenty of room for good humor, serious reflection, and a bit of the absurd. It’s pretty much a rabbit hole to fall into–the galleries of artists’ work are so beautiful. I liked reading about how the site came about. It’s so fluid, this Internet thingie. I love the way an idea like this can percolate, then boil over so fast.
Our Q & A with Margaret is up over there.
In a recent life, Margaret was the editorial director of Martha Stewart Omnimedia, which had to have been one of the large jobs of the universe. Now, in her “retirement,” not only has she stirred up The Sister Project, she keeps a rich rich rich gardening blog, A Way to Garden. You can see her lush and subtle gardens if you go over there. Highly recommended. All this, while tending her garden in upstate New York. So glad that she’s taking it easy these days!
