Well, so much has happened since I last posted (lazy little hooligan that I am).   I don't even know where to begin except to say I've been making strides.  That was my "One Little Word 2011" and boy oh boy!  School is over, thank any god/dess of freedom and liberty that you like, but WE ARE FREE, and we're never going back either!  I'm really making strides trusting my own instincts and not waiting around for anyone's approval.  Got my divorce.  It was pretty anti-climactic but it set off a whirl-wind of un-dealt-with emotions.  I am a survivor of IPSA, or Intimate Partner Sexual Assault, and my husband had me so brainwashed during my marriage that I didn't really realize what had happened to me until I had to face him again.  It was like experiencing every single episode of abuse all over again, but from the perspective of a new woman who knows that it was a terrible crime.  I came to terms with what happened to me and feel that I've made some major strides towards healing from that horrifying time.  If you have questions about IPSA or think you might be a victim, please check out Aphrodite Wounded.  It is an amazing site, with real stories from real women who have experienced this sort of abuse.  
I have also landed a job as a Birth Assistant with my midwife!  Which is big news, because my kids aren't old enough for me to go to midwifery school yet.  This is not only a great job, but a huge stride towards one of my big life goals!  I've also made some friends and gotten involved in the local hippie/pagan community.  I finally feel like life is really going my way for the first time ever!  Better late than never, I guess.  Must be why I feel such a strong connection to Ishtar Inanna, I feel like I've walked through Hell and come out the other side with my head held high.  Happy Solstice everyone!


  1. Hmmm...now that I look at it, it seems that there has been lots of Artemis energy with me lately.

  2. Congrats on being a Birth Assistant! It's great to hear that your keeping your head held high after such a terrible thing. Your strength will inspire many! :)
    Thanks for following too! Goddess Bless,
