My essay is entitled Exodus 1980 Revisited, originally written in 1994:

She then held up her glass and proposed a toast:

” To the Crone, the Wise One, who enables us to cut the cords. May her Wisdom also guide our cutting.

To the Virgin, the New Beginning … may She grow virulently in the rich compost. may She protect our tender new skins.

To the Mother who is Sustainer, Creator … may our Creativity be extravagant and exuberant. Anything is possible. May we understand that we can/do right now create the future.”

And the women wiped their tears and drank to it.
