Welcome to my Book of Mirrors



This is my spiritual journey. I am looking for the truth of who I am and who God is, unfettered by the traditions prescribed by my family, church and culture.

An Excerpt From My Novel

Linda and Ruth discuss their beliefs:

'For me, it's about living life joyously. Embracing the earth, celebrating her changing seasons. Learning the magic of nature. Living with the monthly rythmn of the moon... and worshiping the Goddess who created it all.'

Ruth mused for a while. 'I can't see anything strange in that...except for saying Goddess, and not God.'

'I say tomato, you say 'tomaydo!' Linda imitated her Canadian accent, making them both laugh. 'Languages and religions- they separate us from each other and Goddess.'

'But why say Goddess at all?'

'Language is powerful... others may not question it, but for me, it means everything. I relate to things from my own perspective. My perspective is feminine.'
