Wishing you an smashing September!

From the Crones Counsel President, Janet Morrissey

"We are all longing to go home to some place we have never been---
a place half-remembered and half-envisioned we can only catch
a glimpse of from time to time. Community.
Somewhere, there are people to whom we can speak
with passion without having the words catch in our throats. Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us,  eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate
with us whenever we come into our own power." Read more.
