Happy Anniversary, Isis

Tomorrow marks one year since I began this blog. I'm jumping the gun by one day to celebrate it because I'm liable to forget the special day if I don't write while it's on my mind.

Adena inspired it, beautiful, brilliant, irreverent, sassy, delightful, profane Adena. I found Her blog in a casual websearch for some topic that I have now long forgotten. I found Her comments fascinating and the best way, of course, to answer them, was to create a blog of my own.

I have met so many intelligent, creative people in the year since my first little post. Some have commented once or twice and slipped away. Others have become close friends.

I thank each and everyone who has visited Isis, especially those who have shared their comments.

I will keep this blog going for possibly forever or at least the next fifty years, unless all the hydrogenated oils and greasy meat that I enjoyed in my youth catch up to me before that time.

Why the title? In my study of the world, I have lingered long in Egyptology. I especially found fascinating the mysterious role ascribed to the Goddess Isis in the development of civilization.

She is largely forgotten today, obscured in the study of mythology by loud-mouth boy buffoons like Odin and Zeus.

Thus She symbolizes what has happened to Women in the course of mortal history.

I am a firm believer in the greatness of Womankind, in Her intelligence, in Her universal beauty. My passion in life is to do what I can to help restore Her to Her proper role -- which is to speak freely, to live freely, to lift up Her lovely head in confidence.

Isis is the Goddess in every Woman, deserving to shine forth in Her full glory.
