Lunch today with Deena Metzger, we had some crazy yummy sushi. She is a shaman, a teacher, a healer and in her work to heal the planet, she is clearly luminous. I met her many years ago, but she seems to not age at all. She moves as if she moves through light. Whatever great magic there is in the world, Deena is part of it.
There are some of us who are bearers of light and Deena is one of them. I remember her seeing Wanda at a party at my house, the two of them bowing to each other in my living room.
The journey toward the imagination and the creative process is not one we undertake for ourselves. It is one we undertake because we need to change the world.
I have met greatness in the literary world-Peggy, Deena, Eloise, Lisa, Judy, Maxine, the other Kate, Camille, Wanda, and so many more. It’s a long journey, but worth it.
