Le Coeur et la Mer by Alley Valkryrie at The Wild Hunt

Beautiful and personal account of meeting "Sara-la-Kali" from Alley Valkryrie, a person I much admire for her openness and activism, as well as her writing. I don't really know Alley personally but we are Facebook "friends" and I met her briefly at the Holiday Market where she was selling her ceramics. (Very nice work too, I bought a cool little dish with a raven which I use on my altar.) (Did I mention she is also an artist?)

Column: Le Coeur et la Mer | The Wild Hunt: I’m being visited by someone, and I have no idea who she is. I have no idea what she wants. But she won’t leave me alone. It all seems very intrusive, frankly.”

“You don’t know who she is?”

“No, and I have no idea where to start.”

“Well, did you ask her who she is?”

No, actually, I hadn’t. Of course. How obvious. And so the next time I caught a glance of her, I demanded to know who she was and what she wanted. That night, she came to me in my dreams and provided plenty of answers. (Alley Valkryrie, The Wild Hunt)
