The Vibe of my Tribe

Fredrich Nietzsche said that no price is too high for the privledge of owning yourself. We can be swallowed up in the crowd.

It is important to find your tribe though, to know them, to commune with them, to find strength in their worth and to value them. This is the place where I appreciate mine..

The Friends

I've often been heard to say that I have the best friends in the world. It is a thing you say, it gets bandied about, except in my case it is true. Time and time again they step up, but, it is more than that, they just seem to love my company, want to spend time with me, like my presence. Isn't that an amazing thing? How blessed am I? When you find those people keep them.

The Daughters

A woman who is blessed with daughters is truly blessed. When they work with you they are your strongest allies. Often they are your fiercest opponents. Raising powerful girls is tough to do in a patriarchial world, and modelling being powerful takes a strength you have to find outside of yourself sometimes. 

Love them, protect them, challenge them, shove them out of the nest, be the wind beneath their wings and watch them soar high and make their nests os fur lined that they always come back.

The Coven

I am part of a WhatsApp group of women who all worked together on a fundraising creative endeavour. It was a resounding success on so many levels the greatest of which is the bond that we forged together.

And now, admidst COVID-19 we all carry each other along. Every day in social isolation there is insight and laughter, creativity and song. What a tribe, a band of warrior women whose united strength circles Slievenamon. They are a coven of creativity a cauldren of comfort. 

Bless the ground whereon those women stand, maybe they all be well in themselves and safe. And when all of this is over, we will emerge from our caves and collectively create again.
