A Proclamation!

A chapter from my life . . .

I should write a letter to Polly Shakas, thanking her for helping me get out of my marriage.  I could also thank Bill Moeller.   They were the principals in a most difficult and painful period of my life, and certainly in my children’s lives.

Heralding the Return of our Mother

I am a great grandmother, singing publicly most of my life, influenced by my musical mother who grew up on a farm in Illinois, 1933.  After 2 abusive marriages, and 3 lovely children I came to Berkeley California, received  an MA in clinical psychology.   I then began  a profound spiritual journey inward,  initiated by separation from someone I loved.  My past thirty years have been devoted to heralding the return of the Great Ancestress  through music, art, writing,  speaking, and  life itself.  I also interview women on Women’s Voices, KZYX radio, who work for change  in our  troubled world.
