Shawme Pond Swans, by Kathryn Kleekamp www.SandwichArt.com
As spring dawns across the Cape, Women emerge from winter routines and contemplate life beyond the walls that kept us warm during the long winter months. And what a winter! From record-breaking storms to life shattering earthquakes – change is certainly in the air.
But rebirth requires a passage through darkness before new life can be claimed. As T.S. Eliot says in ‘The Wasteland’: “April is the cruellest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain.”
In this issue, we share the journeys Cape Women have taken through darkness, into light. Jinny Toucan turns grief into a beautiful book of love and hope, Carolyn S. Ellis celebrates life after ovarian cancer and Kathy O’Keefe Kanavos explains why depression may be a message from self to make life-saving changes.
In our Holistic Health section, Connie Hanagan addresses the growing trend of teen “cutting” in her book ‘Look Beyond the Scars’ and Elaine Young tells us why ‘The Condoms Are Next to the Toothpaste'.
We hope you take the time to enjoy these inspiring stories and we look forward to your feedback. We are eternally grateful to our creative contributors, who make this magazine possible. Happy Spring!
