Looking Forward

Archtypes

Works in progress specifically relating to the trinity of the feminine: Maiden, Mother and Crone. Mary questioned about the woman who doesn’t fit into this family so I am changing the trinity to a quartet of women archetypes by adding the Seeker. (The Maiden and Seeker are in process.)

Thoughts on birth and death: It’s the older woman, called The Crone, who has the experience of birth and death, joy and horror. Her wisdom about such matters is highly respected in many cultures and I honor her here.
