portrait of a goddess.

Standard

I spent time this afternoon with one of the most amazing women I know.

Dorothea is a counselor, a storyteller, an inspiration, a goddess, and best of all, she is someone who I connect with, purge with, and share with…always.

I was able to capture snapshots of Dorothea’s essence through an impromptu photo-shoot today.

The goddess herself…

Close-up on the shoes (they were painted by another goddess, Josie)

accessories…

A reminder…

Handmade by her son, Justin, a place for creative treasures to be kept…

Shells turn a discarded beer bottle into beauty… and the mermaid, a symbol of rebirth/home…

Dorothea with her sons, Joe and Justin, approximately 1984…

Another handmade gift from Justin. Dorothea told me that the words he burned into the wood just poured out of him in that order…

Two divine goddesses… Dorothea in the reflection and Artemis on the wall.  Also, a reminder of her connection with the bowed instrument…

…and her giving nature, expressed through these thoughtful gifts she gave to me today… (they are magnets! :))
