By Flora Ware | Blog

I am walking along a forest path. It is dusk, and the light through the trees is turning purple and blue. My steps are steady, unhurried, as the earthy smells of moss and decaying leaves fill my lungs.  The path leads me to a cave shaped like a yoni. This is the womb of an […]
