We Need a Girl God

Here is my most recent published article, which is in Redress, the Journal for the Association of Women Educators in Australia. They only offer a print version, so it is attached as a pdf to my site. www.thegirlgod.com

We had a beautiful time yesterday and I am happy to be married to a kind, considerate and compassionate man.

Wedding Day

Today is my sort-of wedding day. My ex will not allow my children to go to Norway for our actual wedding, so we are spending the day celebrating here with our 4 children. My daughter is thrilled to wear her "flower girl dress" and ride around in a limo for the first time. We will have cake and sparkling drinks. It will be a happy day, despite his selfishness. But I think my children and I will always remember that they were prevented from attending the real cereomony after sailing to a Goddess Island in Norway. It's just one more thing to resent him for. As if there were not enough things already.

"Imagine a woman who follows her creative impulses. A woman who produces original creations. Who refuses to color inside someone else’s lines." ~Patricia Lynn Reilly "Fish Whisperer" by Elisabeth Slettnes
