Just a few weeks ago, one of my students was asking me how the heck is a gal supposed to stay inside her beautiful, beguiling, creative, endlessly renewing feminine nature, while living in a rip-roaringly masculine, gotta-get-it-done patriarchal world that encourages us to set goals and hit them out of the park, and all while...

There is a part of creation that hurts. That could seem humiliating. Or embarrassing.   Creation is … chaotic. Feminine. Co-operating with forces, more than rules. Raw. Risky. Fueled by passion. Making no sense, sometimes. Choosing into a living, breathing truth that may be utterly unrecognizable to others.   I had my ass blown every-which-way-wide open...

I draw courage from the stories of women who have courage. I draw strength from learning from women who have overcome the insurmountable. I transmute when I hear of a woman who has remade herself, cellularly. The fire in my belly busted into a wildfire when I heard Annette’s story. And the very same thing...

It’s a jungle out there, sisters. A jungle, a swamp, a black hole—and just about as comfortable as being stuck in traffic. For many hours. With no GPS. Actually, a real jungle is way more hospitable than the Tinder jungle. At least it’s natural. And the rules makes sense. Yet, one in 10 of us...

I just turned in the second draft to my editor, and I am gearing up for the third and final round of edits for this book, which had been busting a hole through my soul for several years. And I gotta say, this bitch is burnt, fried and crispy. Even when you love love love...

“whither thou goest, i will go. whither thou lodgest, i will lodge. thy people shall be my people, and thy god my god.” – the book of ruth I want to talk about Sisterhood. And Callings. As in – the thing we are called to do in this life. The archaic definition of the word...

A really really really really good friend of mine, Ayo, got engaged last month. For the very first time. At age 68. This was not a likely thing to have ever happened in this world. She came from a single mama who raised her alone. And she had been a single mama, raising her daughter...

Sister Goddess Patty, Age 54 I was born in a car in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on my way to the hospital. In those days (1960), since my mother gave birth before arriving at the hospital, I was considered “contaminated” and had to stay in the room with her instead of the nursery. She had often told...
