Many women have courageously pathed our way, and now as we allow our feminine to rise strong again for Her, Mother Earth, it’s time for us to remember the grace of, and embrace and honour her in ourselves.
Sister also for me represents the sisterly love I feel for my whole entire world family. I long to feel worthy of this priverlegde of living life being a human being on this planet, here, Being…
