Earth and our vaginas...! Hehehe. So true. Our cycles were connected to the moon and in menopause we are connected to the arid, abused, temperamental earth!

May I just add one other thing to list of ideas for our elder female Utopia? Some kind of regular forum where members of the larger community can come and ask us for advice/counsel/feedback. Wisdom is a precious and powerful currency, and older women have tons of it. But like any muscle, it must be exercised to be viable, and I want to make sure that we can all get that chance!

Totally. It also seems much wisdom is lost or cycled through and forgotten year-to-year, so recording it in a way that's artful would make sense. We just need to make sure it doesn't become anything like one of those scary HOAs, lol... We could always needlepoint "Wisdom" on a throw pillow and toss around the circle when we're feeling wise or need some? (I could certainly use some this week.) I DID see this hilarious video last week where the group members only got to talk if they did so when holding a giant vag puppet... it's hard to take yourself too seriously when trying to manage hand-eye-labia coordination ๐Ÿ˜‚

I could use a giant vag puppet right now, as I'm about to turn 50! I'd pay good money for an Empress-branded wisdom pillow, BTW :)

Oooh... I will make a note! We LOVE birthdays around here!!! One thing I am working on, in the middle of everything, is changing up our merch offerings. I want to diversify products... pillows, journals, etc. and bring down prices. And I really want hats! I love Wile's "Hormonal" beanie and I love a good cap that says "absolutely not" for when you're just not feeling things... and then I want to bring back Wise AF, but change the wording up slightly... so plans, plans, plans... :)
