I read this to my therapist, and she said it was "unrelentingly beautiful," which is the best compliment I've ever received.  I've worked hard on it for a long time, and it's really important to me; I first wrote it when I was in deep crisis, but have worked on it since.  It may say some things you disagree with, but I hope people can read it with an open heart.  This witches meditation is a prayer to be seen.

#readwomen2014  A great article with plenty of recommendations for great books by good female authors, the kind of books that usually get ignored by the male intelligentia because they aren't about war or hunting.  Why are books about war & strife more valued than books about children, pregnancy, and family life?  Why are books about intellectual life more valued than books about emotional life?  If books are best when they mirror reality, than why are books by women, which are generally about the everyday social fabric of our lives and psyches, less valued than books by men which are about extreme situations?  I'm not saying that books by men should be de-valued, only that they shouldn't be valued more simply because the subject matter appeals more to men.  Research shows that, in America, women read more than men, more women read books than men, so books by women that appeal to women should be seen as valuable; in fact women are actually taking part in our TRUE American, daily intellectual life more than men.

Nadine Gordimer is a South African writer who won the Nobel Prize in 1991.  I just learned about her from an essay by Susan Sontag - from the press release, Gordimer's work sounds fascinating; another ignored great woman writer for my must-read list.  #readwomen2014

Sage advice from Anne Sexton's "From the Garden."  Sexton was a great poet, and one of the few modern poets whose work i can really understand.
