I discovered a page called Wicca- Spirituality and I just submitted a contribution to the Goddess Awareness Week 2018. The question was which Goddess is your favorite and why.
Hopefully, my contribution is accepted and you can read it on the site. For now, I wanted to share this site with others who may be interested. Below should take you to the site and everyone enjoy your Saturday.
Time Does Not Bring Relief – Sonnet 2
“Time does not bring relief; you all have lied
Who told me time would ease me of my pain!
I miss him in the weeping of the rain;
I want him at the shrinking of the tide;
The old snows melt from every mountain-side,
And last year’s leaves are smoke in every lane;
But last year’s bitter loving must remain
Heaped on my heart, and my old thoughts abide!
There are a hundred places where I fearo go,–so with his memory they brim!
And entering with relief some quiet place
Where never fell his foot or shone his face
I say, ‘There is no memory of him here!’
And so stand stricken, so remembering him!”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay

Craving sanctuary, peace. Raging war in my mind. Always noisy, shots fired. Whispering voices, somewhere. Laughing, mocking television. Static hums from the unplugged. Peeping out the blinds, darkness. Anxiety's cold hands squeeze my throat. Crawlspace is cluttered with time. Even happiness hides in winter.
I was lucky enough to get a chance to read this book through Glose free. There May Be Spoilers This story is told by Wendy, the oldest of two sisters that lean on each other to survive their mentally ill mother.
Wendy tries hard to shield her younger sister from the ugly details of their mother’s life. Later, it is Robin who can stand up to their mother while Wendy tries to be the help their mother needs.
Georgann, has an uncanny ability to manipulate people, especially her daughters and men. She has several marriages, several boyfriends, and several married boyfriends. Although Wendy and Robin live an extravagant life full of theater, top private schools, being with the popular crowd, and famous people, they learned to hold their breaths for their mother to ruin everything.
Their mother had a “Joan Crawford – Mommie Dearest” quality of being cruel. From telling them their father didn’t want them, to announcing they had different fathers, she kept her children from feeling loved or stable. They had to deal with suicide attempts, their rooms being destroyed in the middle of the night, her drinking, and humiliation even at high school graduations.
This book reaches into your heart and stays there long after the end. It shows us an ugly truth that not all mothers are fit and what does one do when the person they depend on tries to hit them with a car or throws a burning shirt at them? This story has glamour, humor, sadness, and tragedy rolled into one book. On a scale of 1 to 10, I definitely rate it a 10+.
