Meeting My Madwoman

Today I (re)started reading and working through the book “Meeting the Madwoman”, by Linda Schierse Leonard. This book is all about empowering the feminine spirit and acknowledging that the madwoman includes both creation and destruction. It’s about embracing our inner madwoman and using that energy in a creative way to better our lives. It’s about acknowledging the dark side of our femininity… not only the gentle side which society has approved. Lately I’ve been finding myself thinking a lot more about the dark side of life in general and in myself. I’ve had the realization that the darkness has an important role to play, when used appropriately. Anyway…I’ll write more about this sometime in the near future. For now though, I wish to share the sketch which was inspired by my recent rumination on and acceptance of the dark side…the wild woman within.

  1. Aww thanks MiMi! You are so sweet. The book is great. I read another chapter last night and have say that it's good stuff. I think you'll get something out of it too. Good to see you. ❤

  2. Uh oh… the Dark Side revealed (well… soon in the next post).I like the sketch, and think it would be awesome to see more full-bodied ones, though I've a sneaking suspicion she may be nekkid… This thought does not originate from Wishful Thinking I swear it! ;-)It's great the book can inspire you so much. I am curious to see just how as I check out our next post…Jak at The Cryton Chronicles & Dreams in the Shade of Ink
