“She teaches us to stand on our own two feet, to stick up for ourselves, to fight for the underdog, and to speak out when injustice is concerned. She is deliberately paired with specific planets for a reason. If she happens to be conjunct one of your planets, consider yourself an ambassador for the cause. Look for what, (planet) how, (sign) and where (house) you are being called upon to make a difference.”
Pallas Athene with the Head of Medusa’s head on her breastplate also known as Algol. (A fixed star too ) Watercolor by Hudley
“So the God of the sea raped Medusa, but what is more horrifying was Pallas Athena siding with the Gods in condemning her. This important part of the story is often skipped over… together with her rival Pallas Athena she became invincible. Maybe there is a message here, when former adversaries are united they become stronger. Algol is also definitely a star of transformation. The blinking binary star goes from light to dark in cycles, like Persephone.”

Sunday May 26 will be the time to join with punk comrades and celebrate our originators and characters of the early California punk scene. The Avengers, the Dils and the Alley Cats.
In memory of Jimmy Wilsey
I stumbled into the early punk scene. The Australian Saints and the San Franciscan Avengers gave me the courage to go and see any other alternative underground bands on my own. I found myself melting into a wild alchemy of youths that had something to say. We were finding our voices. All the unknown characters were there, nobodies creating a scene together. We were wild and knew all the songs by heart by The Dils, The Alley Cats and the Avengers.
I will be there handing out some badges joining in the event in memory of our youthful rebellion that is still the heart beat of this crazy continuity of punk rock that still drives our DNA onward,,,

My review of Film….
“Although we are typically in the habit of perceiving our world in terms of solid shapes and forms, Taoism teaches that we can train ourselves to perceive in other ways, and a good place to start is with our own human body. Though we may now experience our body as being rather solid, at a molecular level it is comprised mostly of water–a very fluid substance! And at an atomic level, it is 99.99% space–a vast (and infinitely intelligent) emptiness.” Online source …
“The Mantis will sit in an attitude of extreme reverence and contemplation, his head turned sometimes slightly on side as if he were waiting…for the wind to come from far beyond the mountains on the other side of the desert to bring him a story of life before and beyond the moment. …” ~ Pg. 22. THE ERANOS LECTURE SERIES; THE CREATIVE PATTERN IN PRIMITIVE AFRICA BY LAURENS VAN DER POST
The Special Fluff Faerie was written thirty something years ago. My young niece had just come into the world. I was inspired by her sweetness and was feeling the desire to create something special for her. Also, the question of life, death and rebirth were heavy on my mind during my early twenties. The belief in Faerie Tales and Folktales were a part of my life. The ability to create something out of the magic of my imagination was a new developing confidence I was exploring. I think it is easy to see that this little story is about life’s mysteries. It is about belonging, responsibilities, hope and sweet possibilities in life. That life has meaning!
My sister told me that her daughter didn’t get or understand the story. A few years later they sent the story back to me. I had made a little handmade story book for my niece with the The Special Fluff Faerie in it. I have held on to the story book for all these years. I was hurt that my niece never seemed to grasp the value of it. Tossing it aside like she did. She most likely grew up, went to college and moved out without a thought about the story.
I am re-priming The Special Fluff Faerie now because I feel overlooking it and throwing it away is not what would be the best thing for my psyche. It has value to me. So, for due respect to Eagle of the East, Spring and the Native American Medicine Wheel ~ I dedicated this book. I will again publish this little story I hope it will be enjoyed by others, be it adults or youths.
It is a strange little story, yet most Faerie Stories are strange little stories. Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing is special to me. They give me the opportunity to publish my works for free without a middle man. I am in the process of publishing many of my works. I guess I just had to wait until the time was ripe. It is very ripe indeed!!!
A Matter of Choice.
I am not a feminist or a professional business woman. I took the more traditional path as a wife and mother. I am also an entrepreneur. I find I can balance the male and female within myself. Jungian Psychology calls this balancing the Anima and Animus. I am creatively involved in projects that have meaning to me and beyond myself or the extramundane. I am naturally a supportive person that likes home, intimate relationships and small pubs. My goals are based on love not profits. I am learning to be very happy to cross the bridge of financial stability and independence.
I dedicate this day to the character Maggie Paul played by Marsha Mason from the film Cinderella Liberty (1973).

The outdoor crystal that merges with nature and the Sun.

“satire is strong irony or sarcasm—”in satire, irony is militant”—but parody, burlesque, exaggeration, juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing. ”
The Terrible Death
“The praying mantis lives her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.”
Continuity of life,
Innocence, experience, wisdom
Back to the punk rock years
Memories, friendships, and bands.
Freedom and searching
Anarchy and hope
That wild punk chick
Has merged again with me.
Spirituality, nature, and chaos
Praying mantis in my garden
On my arm
In my book,
The wild praying mantis has merged with me,
Even in the tattoo artist’s garden.
