Welcome to the virtual realm of the MAD Goddess™. That’s short for Middle AgeD Goddess, and indeed I was middle aged and a tad bit mad (in a not going to take it anymore kind of way) when this all started. These days, I’m not so much of either. Instead I’m becoming a crone one experience at a time. Not so long ago I would have said one mistake at a time, but as an emerging crone I am expected to be a wise woman; wise women don’t make mistakes, we simply have learning experiences.
Anyway, a funny thing happened on the way to this place; I lost my youth and found my way—my own way. I’m manifesting a simpler life, a life I can love, with fewer things to weigh me down and more experiences to lift me up. Things don’t always go as I planned but I’m hanging in there—sometimes by a thread.
I am a writer, artist, homemaker, feminist and wildcraft witch. I look to the stories of ancient Goddess archetypes to understand the Divine Feminine aspect in today’s modern world.
I’m living the second half of life without surrender (otherwise known as having zero F⊗ to give). If you care to join me, you can follow along with the unruly thoughts of a not-so-old lady by clicking on Musings in the menu.
