Pause in Blog

Whether permanent or not, this blog is now combined with my other one Alchemy of Clay. http://blackmtnbarb.blogspot.com/
go there, and then follow me over there. The personal and genealogical archives, and Black Mountain NC scenery and my potting life are combined. It's a good thing.

Goddess studies loss

Three gentleman sailors...????

Yes, the yacht races at Lake Tomahawk, completely run from the shore.

There was a special wedding during the time I took my walk.  It had been provided free to a Marine who has served two tours in Afghanistan, and his bride, from a contest.  Here is the balcony where the service apparently was held. 



As I looked at FaceBook this afternoon following my walk, I learned of the death of a dear and talented woman who has written, researched and led much of the forefront of serious studies about goddesses.

This picture reminds me of Patricia Monaghan.  Our lives are all a bit diminished by her loss.  She was a treasure.  My favorite book of hers was "The Red Haired Girl from the Bog," a charming and personal story of her trip to Ireland to explore goddesses and her Celtic roots, which were intertwined.
