Dear Poets, Dreamers and Sister Crones,

“She was a virgin once, a long time ago, and then a sexually potent fertile female, and then went through menopause. She has given birth several times and faced death several times – the same times. She is facing the final birth / death a little more nearly and clearly every day now.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin.

Inspired by the depth of Ursula’s wisdom and Julia’s fantastic artwork, today feels like a good day to muse on writing a new Jungian themed essay about the Crone, so I’ll be taking a short break from blogging to focus on this task. After sharing many Maiden and Mother poems and stories over the years, it feels great to begin gathering the bones for ‘Croneology’, my next book.

I hope you all enjoy the onset of spring brought about by this weekend’s full moon, and I look forward to sharing more poetry, prose and haiku with you on my return.

Blessings always,
