The Third Eve is about a lot of things, but at its point of conception it is about Eve–many metaphorical Eves. It is about the first Eve, the first perfect, flawless female and her shadowy counterpart, the fallen Eve. And it is, of course, about the second Eve, Mary, the bondservant of the Lord who became the recipient of his divine seed and Theotokos. Finally, it is about the third Eve, the bride of Christ, that beautiful lotus growing out of the mud of this dark world, this dark psyche. The Third Eve is who we are becoming.
On this blog, I write about many issues, but try to remain true to the call of saints and sirens that resounds from the spirit’s trumpet. Faith, mothering, being a widow and a waif; all these and other topics besides will, hopefully, find their ways into this blog. I hope, mostly, to get onto these pages many of the bits that don’t fit anywhere else in my life, and also to meet new friends along the way.
A published freelance writer with a Ph.D. in psychology and an analytical perspective, my interests include the development of the Self, the care of the soul, and the life of the spirit.
Widowed after a 30-year marriage, I’ve mothered umpteen children who entered my family through marriage, birth, adoption, and foster care, and have two ridiculously spoiled Chihuahuas.
Thanks for visiting, and godspeed.
