Both a Story & a Journal
Take my hand. Follow me to the feet of the storyteller Spider Woman who sings the world into being. Follow a mother and her son into the parched desert of the heart. Listen. Death lies close to life, the way a canyon steps off into a cloud or a crow calls out into night. We count them, these crows, these moments of rich black we peer through to see the dawn. What was dark becomes a window of grace.
“Betsy’s new book is a tale of a life-changing experience that she subsequently dreamed, wrote, and painted into myth and meaning.” — Angela Werneke, Illustrator of the Medicine Cards
