Imagine a Woman In Love With Herself

How might your life have been different if there had been a place for you . . . where you were received and affirmed? A place where others had been affirmed before you, each in her time, affirmed as she struggled to become more truly herself.

A place where, after the fires were lighted, and the drumming, and the silence, there would be a hush of expectancy . . . a knowing that each one there was leaving old conformity to find her self . . . a sense that all of womanhood stood on the threshold.

And if, during the hush, others had helped you to trust your own becoming . . . to trust it and quietly and prayerfully to nurture it . . .

How might your life be different? ~ Judith Duerk (Circle of Stones)
