Goddess Murder

I posted a blog yesterday, essentially about the frustrations of being a writer trying to ferret out the truth about all things religious, as well as about the nature of consciousness, sacred sexuality, quantum mechanics, a lot else, and how they all interrelate—that sort of writer, but not an entertainer.
