it was amazing
bookshelves: woman-history, reviewed

I could never actually say that I finished volume 2 or 1 of Ancient Mirrors of Womanhood, they are the work of the incredible scholarship and imagination of Merlin Stone. These two books together are a never-ending fountain of ideas, inspiration and unspoken knowledge for any writer, for any woman, for any human being. They are the forgotten stories of our modern minds that I suspect we still remember, although we may not recall. My copy of this book was hard to come by, so if you get the chance....

I have to add that I actually met Merlin Stone once. She graciously met me for lunch so that I could interview her for a Goddess radio series that I was producing at the time, (early nineties.) She explained to me that she had agoraphobia and rarely left her apartment anymore, which made me feel honored that she had done so to meet with me. And she brought me a gift! I still have it on my bookshelf, Plays By and About Women. She was encouraging, gracious, humble and kind, and a personal inspiration.
