:: Goddess Gift E-Zine ::
Just an informal note to share a couple things with you. Why, I'm so far behind this is the first chance I've had to wish you a blessed and prosperous New Year . . . and if I took the time to put all the usual 'fancies' in this email, it would probably be Halloween before I got it out to you.
It's been snowing here all day. We were supposed to get a light dusting. It's been continual. Now it's beautiful, peaceful and quiet here in our wooded area.
That's the good news.
The bad news is that if this keeps up (and it shows no sign of stopping anytime soon), the limbs of the trees will be breaking off from their heavy loads and taking the power lines with them. So I thought it might be good to get this to you today, instead of saying, like Scarlett O'Hara, "I'll worry about that tomorrow!"
After all, tomorrow I may be worrying about something really critical, like how to heat up a cup of coffee over a votive candle!
I've been thinking of how very proud I've been of women this week. Especially Gabby Giffords and Sarah Brady when they met with Congress this week and were so hauntingly and movingly eloquent in their testimony pleading for gun control measures.
And, of course, I thought of how very 'Artemis' they seemed.
There is much that I admire about the Greek goddess Artemis.
What would we do without the support of other women . . . they give us hope and comfort. And if they're creative they give us inspiration and wonderful artwork to share with you. The image of Artemis above was just such a gift from Judith Goldberg, astrologer and goddess lover (and an Artemis type herself, according to her Goddess Quiz). She's also a SoulCollage Facilitator and what could be cooler than that!

Pssst! And be sure to let us know when you've got a 'beauty' to let us share :-)

So Beautiful I Could Feel My Heart Breaking
In spite of all the shock and sorrow that life brings our way, we sometimes encounter something so achingly beautiful that it makes us grateful to be living on this planet.
This video did that to me. Hope you're equally in awe!
