interview questions

I've been mulling this over for awhile and here are the questions I've come up with in regards to my goddess interview idea.

Basics: name (how they'd like to be addressed), age, and location.

1. What feminine aspect do you like most about yourself? What feminine aspect do you admire most in your women friends?

2. If you were to adapt an archetype, would you consider yourself a maiden, mother, crone, or goddess?

3. What is the most important thing a woman can do for herself?

4. Tell us about a woman that influenced your view of the feminine.

I'm having a bit of difficulty with this. I think we should have 5 questions that are fixed for everyone, with the option for the interviewer to ask more of her own choosing. Comments? Can you help me come up with another question as well?

Self-Portraits A Galore!

You know it is a slow day at work when I can post two days in row *grin*

I came across this
site


Self-Portrait Day



Every Tuesday they feature new self-portraits along with a little blurb on the person and their site. Since I KNOW a certain Goddess is VERY GOOD at taking portraits of herself *cough*Creatrix*cough*

That’s all…

work = stress

I have been extremely stressed out over my job as of late.

So while I was catching up on my favorite blogs I found this link: Why Work? from Blue Alvarez’s blog. I found it interesting and a little hopeful. So check it out if you like you might be surprised, I was :)

(Sorry to cover up, Creatrix’s free sex post!)

free sex


free sex
Originally uploaded by irregulargirl.


I've been asked to lead a weekly photo discussion in the Sex and Psychology group on Flickr. I picked this photo from the group's pool because it brings up so many questions for me and I am curious as to what others think.

What does free sex mean? Is sex really ever free? Does gender matter?

I know sex for me can be freeing, but it isn't free. I have to invest myself in it.

So what is free sex? and is this image a solid representation of it?

If you like to follow the discussion as it develops, go here.

More Goddess Art

Melissa Harris

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Go explore!

Fine art site, with gorgeous fantasy portraits and more...and the

Creatrix site, beautiful goddess art "celebrating women's love of life, beauty, nature, and magic."

I've been thinking about a theme for my own fantasy portrait. What a wonderful idea. Today, mine would have earthtones and perhaps a maiden/mother/crone feel to it.

What would yours include?

Showcasing WildGoddess


We always have an opportunity to make this choice in every moment. We can choose to exist in a vaccum with those blinders on, believing and trusting in the "world of effects" - the world we can see. Or we can choose to open our hearts into a new way of being, to accepting a higher vision of who we are, moving beyond what we think and see. We can choose to listen.

This multi-faceted goddess has three wonderful sites to showcase her art, photography, music and writings:
Tribe of Mari
The Secret WildGoddess
WildGoddess.com

socities of peace

Second World Congress of Matriarchal Studies

This groundbreaking congress will bring together speakers from Europe and the USA with a special invitation to indigenous women and men from matriarchal societies. The speakers will discuss both the theoretical and the cultural/political aspects of matriarchal societies. The social order of matriarchal societies is non violent. Contrary to the common prejudice, which sees matriarchies as "women's rule", these societies have real gender-egalitarian, consensus-based and peaceful traditions, in which all living creatures are respected. Although they have not been explored objectively and impartially until recently and have not been adequately represented in Western socio-cultural sciences, matriarchal forms of society still exist in various areas of the world and have had a long and interesting history.

The matriarchal form of society, which has been shaped mainly by women, has generally been misunderstood. It is our intention now to present and publicize a clearer and more accurate view. We are also excited that indigenous women and men from still living matrilineal or matriarchal societies will speak to the public about their way of life and about their political struggles with surrounding patriarchal societies.

The Making of Eve

The Making of Eve

Horses were involved, no
question. And leopards,

yes. Foxgloves dropped
their blossoms and roses

opened their hearts in blue
air. Geysers pushed up

from stone while Strawberry
Moon rounded, and blushed.

How the dogs bayed! Each
lily curved its creamy petals.

The forest sharpened its teeth
with fire. Oh, the hiss of serpents,

the sad moan of the sea. She
bloomed from the seed of

the planet, a slow and patient
tendril, sapling of her own desire.
