Recently I returned to my homelands, the region where I was born and spent my early days. For most of my life I thought I would never return here: I couldn’t get away quick enough as a young teen … the world called and there was pain in this place. I returned after forty-seven years […]

Gaian Powers

Persephone’s Return or Departure?

Eostar – Persephone Returns!

Demeter @ Spring Equinox
