Welcome to the virtual realm of the MAD Goddess™ —short for Middle AgeD Goddess. Indeed, when all of this began I was middle aged, and utterly mad (in a not going to take it anymore kind of way). These days, I’m not so much of either. Instead I’m becoming crone one experience at a time.
You’re probably wondering what this is all about. For all of the TLDR Goddesses our there (that’s Too Long Didn’t Read, if you don’t know), you can cut right to the chase by clicking on “Your Story.” If you want to know more about the MAD Goddess, try “Herstory”. The Mad Goddess charge is, well, you’ll just have to read it.
Now for the rest of you.
Not so long ago I would have said I was becoming crone one mistake at a time, but as a a crone in training I am expected to be wise; 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. I want to have less of the thing I don’t need and I want to do more of what I love. 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 stir up brews in my kitchen to support healthy mind, body and spirt, and I follow the moons and the seasons of nature with quiet reverence. My religion is love, my dogma is freedom and my church is the wild earth.
I’m living the second half of life to suit me, no surrender. If you care to join me, you can follow the scattered thoughts of a not-so-old lady by clicking on Musings in the menu.
