On Sunday the 15th of October, 2017, the last day of 'The Mothernists II: Who Cares for the 21st Century?' a forest walk was organised to visit 'Big Mama', one of the largest groove stones in the forest of Lille Hareskov, just outside of Copenhagen. Today, most people probably understand the name ‘Hareskov’ as 'the wood of the hares', but when spelled as ‘Harreskov’ it means something quite different as it now becomes ‘the wood of the stones’. It is here that the unusual stones with grooves cut across them can be found. As part of the walk, the very last presentation of 'The Mothernists II' took place by the 'Big Mama' in the form of a conversation between Deirdre  M. Donoghue and Pirkko Donoghue. Their conversation titled as 'A Conversation With My Mother' is a talk about feminism, environmentalism, buddhism and the passage of time.
