Me in the Middle is Published

 

 

I’ve put the finishing touches on my story and it’s now in e-book and paperback, as well as on my website. It’s good that I’ve written this story in my own voice from my own experience and memory. Now my children and grandchildren will have a piece of my life and pieces of life in the past 70 plus years. Life is good!
I’ve been told I’ve done a beautiful job of writing about both the joys and sorrows in my life.
I’m grateful for the time I’ve been given to enjoy writing and sketching now that life is slowing down for me.  These are gifts that I’ve been given and now am blessed with the time to enjoy them.
I wish for you the same life’s blessings.
P.S.  Next, I’m thinking about writing an historical fiction piece about my paternal grandmother who we didn’t get to know because she died at 47.

A small town, New Jersey Catholic girl grows up in the 1940s and 50s following all the rules. Until she doesn’t. Married with five children, her husband casually tells her one day that he’s leaving. Through marriage, desertion, solo parenting, and creating financial security for her children and herself, within the almost constant context of the Church, its rules, and its own significant failings, this is an American woman’s life, through some of the most significant decades of the United States. Against a backdrop of the Fifties and McCarthyism, the Sixties with the Kennedy brothers and Dr Martin Luther King Jr, through to 9/11 and Ground Zero, here is the voice of one woman, who wants to be heard.

Me in the Middle ~ Divine Feminine

“People heal by being able to tell the story, the whole story.”

Divine Feminine #3

********************

“Today we are witnessing an immense longing for relational, mutually empowering feminine qualities at every level of our society—from our politics, to our economics, in our psyche, our cultures, our patterns of leadership, and our theologies, all of which have become far too warlike, competitive, individualistic, mechanistic, and non-contemplative. We are terribly imbalanced.

Unfortunately, the feminine has often had to work in secret, behind the scenes, indirectly. It’s to the church and culture’s own detriment that women haven’t been recognized as leaders.”

~Richard Rohr OFM~

Journeys with the Divine Feminine

A Labor of Love

JOURNEYS WITH THE DIVINE FEMININE (See more) is a collection of 24 personal stories of women’s experiences in discovering the Divine Feminine and journeying within to experience it, understand it, and grow from it. You will see yourself reflected here. You will see paths you didn’t know existed, and you may even feel freer to walk some you’ve perhaps been afraid to venture down.

The writers are from Irish, Dutch, German, Scottish, North American, Trinidadian, English, Indian, French, Australian, New Zealand and New Zealand Maori backgrounds, with combinations of Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Pagan, Wiccan, Baha’i and other religious and spiritual practices and traditions. They are writers and artists, therapists and coaches, mothers and grandmothers, academics, yoga teachers, psychics and healers, nurses and salespeople, sisters and daughters.

The re-emergence of the Divine Feminine from oppression, suppression, repression
and ultimately depression, is vital to restoring the balance of this world and all who
live on this planet. Too long, we have been living a lopsided life as the forgiveness,
love and compassion so sorely needed have been lost and are now being resurrected.
~Patricia Iris Kerins (Foreword)

Their journeys are often physical – to sacred places around the world, genealogical – exploring the gifts and wisdom of their ancestors near and far, intellectual, and always emotional. Their experience of the Divine Feminine is necessarily spiritual – encompassing a myriad of different meanings of that term – revealing that the Sacred is rooted in the soil as much as the heavens.
