When women are in conflict is it because forces are keeping them from being who they are. Nature is completely free of the constructs and conditioning that try to dictate who we should be. Nature is a woman. Earth is a mother. When we crave wildness it is not that we need or seek something new, it is that we crave to return. To return to who we are. In the same way, we discuss the strength of women today in equality discourse as something new, almost as novelty. When the truth is we have always been strong. Even the word ’empowerment’ presupposes a provision or a permission of power, which is a nullity because it simply is. Leadership is not linear. It is spherical, holographic, nuanced, visible, and invisible. The power has always been there. The process for women today is refining the individual method and modality. The weapons of choice. Nothing can stand in the way of a determined woman. Even history in all its warped inversion cannot deny us this. We choose our stories.

Indeed! I met two remarkable people the other day whom I’m sure would strike a chord, in fact you’re probably well aware of them already: Captain Liz Clark and Climber Brittany Griffith (of course they have many other strings to their bows too!), I feel you’d also get on famously with Liss Connell, founder of Slow Travel Magazine, in fact, I’d venture to say she’d want to feature you.
I can’t thank you enough for responding so thoughtfully Al, I’m always thrilled to learn of outstanding pursuits and philosophies, especially by women. I’ve just looked up and begun following all of your recommendations! Remarkable women indeed! My greatest thanks again 😊☀️
