Decades ago, I crossed paths with three sisters. Each unique and full of courage and the kind of beauty that springs from deep connection and authenticity. One of them became my son’s godmother. And although we do not see her often, I chose wisely. They remind me that every woman is part of a web and yet we spin our own stories. We all move through tides of loss and glory and joy. I am grateful for my friends, my siSTARS.
I began work last week on a children’s book. In all the conflict of late between science and religion, I choose mythos. Mythos is the perfect dance between the two. Mythos finds that place within us that connects us to our own story and our own explanations for things. In this case, it is as easy as night and day.
Daz (the perfect artist for this) has been giving the following description:
The Three Sisters of the Sky.
Celeste, Selene and Soleil
Celeste, the vigilant the keeper of the balance of night and day. She keeps the peace between her two sisters Selene – the moon and Soleil – the sun.
Celeste is the oldest of the sisters. She dresses in multicolor stars and black cloaks, misty grey veils, colors of twilight and dawn. She is about beginnings and endings. She wakes her sisters and pulls back the veil of stars between dark and light. The morning glory and jackrabbits are her friends. Fireflies are her messengers. Night is coming. All will be well. Dawn is coming. Today will be glorious.
Soleil is the middle sister, she dresses is reds, oranges, yellows, blazing colors and gold. She visits the farmers to grow crops, she shines she shimmers. She waves to animals who bask. She warms. She strides across the bright fields. Sunflowers always turn their faces toward her. Coyote, Songbirds and deer are her familiars.
The youngest sister is Selene – she dresses is blues and indigos and silver. She visits the children to bring dreams. She glows and gleams and her hair is silver-blue beams. She follows travelers to brighten their path. She cools and comforts. She strolls silent through shadowed lands. The moonflower and jasmine bloom to greet her. Her friends are bats and foxes.
