"The Art you do, Toni Truesdale, is the expression of truth in beauty- you simply cannot deny the truth or the tears"
~ Danica Anderson PHD, author of "Blood and Honey: The Secret Herstory of Women, South Slavic Women's Experience in Modern Day Territorial Warfare"
Our ancestors, all, tread through pristine wilderness, crossed deserts, glaciers, oceans and at each stop seeded future generations. At every step they tread they called the sacred Earth a beautiful name. Across the world there is a clear connection from our genesis to the present manifestation of the divine female; The Great Mother: Magna Dea, Tara, Pachamama, Danu, Callileach, Tiamat, Nut, Gaia, Tonantzin, Hon Tu, Demeter, Ana, Bhumi, Joro, The Woman That Fell from the Sky...whom produced all life on this Blue Planet. The passages continue today; but now it is time to reconnect the bonds that tie people to this World; to each other, to all life. May we begin to celebrate again the source, her sacredness:
Goddess of a Thousand Names.
ILLUMINATING MY THOUGHTS, RESEARCHING IDEAS,
WRITING THE STORIES
The recurrence of the seasons continue to encircle our lives,
As in the past gave celebrations to our ancestors.
Spring Equinox, Summer Solstice,
Fall Equinox, and Winter Solstice
Mark those passages in a yearly cycle all over the world.
We have learned to plant food and medicines
In accordance with the agricultural calendar;
We dance in a circle to celebrate the planting,
Harvesting, and the storing of food.
Buildings, monuments, and spiritual spaces;
Have been built by our ancient civilizations,
To align with the celestial movements that determine
The four seasons at the point of each transition.
