Having concluded the two series called Women and Our Future and How Are You America?, its time to bring on new foci. These foci will be interwoven. Among them will be the transformation of the world as we empower women. It is very far from over. Also I will be returning to the inner life of the Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy and bring in some other adventures.
In the coming months I’m going to mix the sequence of the themes. I found I could not continue with the examination of the coming role of women without looking at men. Oh them? Yes, them and, of course, I’m one of them. And quite honestly in my life I find so much about men and their culture distressing. Certainly there are remarkable men who have made significant contributions, but I am also troubled by much of what I’ve seen and experienced. And so from a different standpoint I’m going to explore the issue of patriarchy. It turns out to be a complex subject open to evaluation and, yes, speculation. As we go forward in our changing world we need to look at patriarchy, what it may represent and where it might be leading us. The road ahead is complex and for me searching possibilities ahead is my daily bread.
More on the Roots of the Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy
We will continue to look more deeply into the Gaia’s Majesty Trilogy. Books have roots and many forms of inspiration. One root is my support of feminism, but there are other things feeding the books which deserve an airing.
Post War Europe
And there will also be departure. I’m going to share some memories. As I’ve been writing my posts I find I suddenly am touching memories of things I and my family encountered in Europe over the years after World War II.
A Caribbean Adventure
Also on the international front will be posts about the Caribbean. My wife and I had a fifteen year adventure in St. Lucia. We stumbled upon it with friends and were entranced. We built a home and then also stumbled into a business. You notice I use the word “stumble” because so much of what we do in life is exactly that no matter how planful we are. Getting to know such a culture in depth is truly interesting.
More on the Andromeda Women
With a different slant there will be another series related to the Gaia’s Majesty books. I’ve given a little information about my view of the women who are so central to the story. Their history is diverse, fascinating and revealing. Yes, they are fictional characters, but I no longer view them as such. For me they came alive and have substantive meaning. I feel a need to share my thoughts.
Come join in the fun.
