GRIEVING THE LOSS OF THE ILLUSION OF SELF

There comes a time when all we have left are the tears we have not cried. Tears for our soul.

Sacred Trinity of Woman – Shadow of the Crone

How many times has the Crone within me been ostracized by society? How many times has she been on the outside looking in? How many times has she been dismissed and ignored? How many times has she been cast off as too old to know? How many times has she suppressed her voice through fear of the truth it will [...]
