Why Persephone? I think it must have to do with the journeying between worlds, learning to navigate and live with the changes of moving from the light world to the dark and back. There is, of course, the fact that I was born in the spring. And, it's hard to ignore her story's focus on death. Being the fear-based type that I am, what else would I focus on?
I have been wondering a lot about what I should be learning in this time of experiencing one physical problem after the next. I feel out of whack, or hunkered down in the doldrums (hmm....that would be a good title for a poem), hanging out here with Hecate who has always been Persephone's guide and companion. Maybe I've wandered off the road and she is leading me back to my chosen god.
