I recently divorced my huband who I lived with for 30 years. Since I had to sell my house and move, I decided to look for a new job in a warmer location than NH. I knew my daughter would leave NH when applying to medical school, so I did not want to be left alone in NH. I interviewed in NH, NM, and CA. After about 9 months of looking, I was offered the Radiation Safety Officer position at UCSC in SantaCru, CA. I am living in Campbell with my two cats Summer and Solsticce in a beautiful apartment. I am very fortunate to be working at home now.
After painting Freyja's image and singing Her chants, I realized my new story was similar to the myth of Freyja. She leaves her husband and daughter in search of gold and power. She travels with two cats. Freyja is my patron Goddess now.
I recently decided to study to become a doula. Within 6-8 months I will be able to attend births and assist women in CA and eventually Latin America to make birthing safer and less traumatic for women. I feel as though I have transformed to being interested in my own transformation and healing to putting community women first. Maybe I will be attracted to a birthting Gooddess next. I am interested in Ixmucane of Guatemala and Tlazolteotl in Mexico. Maybe it is time for another painting.
