The Greek goddess, Hera, is goddess of marriage and worldly power, often associated with women at midlife as they prepare for the passage into old age. I shot this little garden fairy and it made me think of Hera. Sitting there, holding her gazing ball on her lap trying to see into the future, while floating on a pond of her tears shed for the past days of her youth gone by.
She has been with me this week. Our most fretful day was spent at the gyno wishing we were there awaiting the sound of the baby's heartbeat rather than waiting for the treatment plan for menopause and the results of a bone density test.
