I am celebrating 7 years of monthly gatherings with a small, eclectic group of wonderful women. We call ourselves the goddesses. We started meeting because I put out the call. I’d had enough of not seeing my dear friends. They responded. And have kept responding for 7 years now.
I’m celebrating our commitment to each other, to the power of women & to the bonds of love & friendship.
I’m celebrating the perspective that 7 years brings – of love found, of love lost, of births, of deaths, of separation, marriage & divorce, of child-rearing going smoothly & going sideways, of sweet highs & sorrowful lows & everything in between.
As Maya Angelou says they ‘make me proud to spell my name W O M A N.’
In honour of all we’ve done together, all the witnessing, support, tears & laughter I am sharing this BBC film on goddesses (truth be told I’ve only just started watching it but it looks great).
Enjoy the perspective women & history bring.
