“A very happy birthday to a very special soul – your peace and serenity perfume the atmosphere wherever you are – you are a traveling oasis who brings rest and refreshment to those of us lucky enough to find ourselves in your midst...May all your days be filled with the awareness that your life is blessed and that you are a great blessing!
J. Lebow
Greta, you are our Aurora Borealis:
Inviting and dangerous and beautiful –
as many edges (waterfalls, doorways) are.
Bravo and thank you

“Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning.” Maya Angelou

“To write is to taste life twice.” Anais Nin

“I continue to create because writing is a labor of love, …an act of defiance, a way to light a candle in a gale wind.” Alice Childress

“Writing is one of the ways I participate in transformation- one of the ways I practice the commitment to explore bodies of knowledge for the usable wisdoms they yield…Writing is one of the ways I do my work in the world.” Toni Cade Bambara

An Excerpt by Sesheta from the “Book of Coming Forth by Day”:

“My heart is with me and it shall never come to pass that it shall be taken away.

I live in Ma’at, and I have my being in truth. I live by my word and my heart doth live.

I live by saying what is in my heart, and it shall not be taken away from me.

I open the door of heaven. I govern my throne and I give new birth to myself.”
