Respecting Our Elders

“Radiant, luminous “crone” woman.

During ancient times, the crones, hags and witches were frequently sages, leaders, midwives and healers in their communities and were revered for their wisdom and knowledge.

As history evolved and a patriarchal society took hold, the definitions of the crone, (the crowned one) the hag, (the holy one), and the witch (the wise one) were distorted.

May we again respect all elders and honor their wisdom.”

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content
    seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not
    sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured
    I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great
    though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

      I was not aware about that issue with Safari. I’ll research to see if there’s a setting or some other work-around, otherwise I’ll notify WordPress. Thanks for your comment and the heads up!

      *Update* It appears that Safari is indeed compatible and clearing your cache may resolve view issues. Here’s a link to the WordPress support info:
