Becoming the Villainess by Jeannine Hall Gailey


I am moving between real world and mythology, both familiar as as well as fairy tales. Comic books come alive and myth becomes reality, reality merges into magic. I am in awe of the all the dimensions I am going through. It takes me through such a range of emotions, that is undescribable.

~Becoming the Villainess by Jeannine Hall Gailey

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
While you pray beneath your mother's
tree you carve a phoenix into your palm
with a hazel twig and coal;
every night she devours more of you.

The "Where are you?" sounded to me like someone with the flu. I've had it too. Hope you are better soon.
